Latest Activity: Feb 23
Tiny Fix Bike Gang & friends are holding a bake sale at The Bike Lane (2130 N. Milwaukee Ave, Chicago) to benefit Dustin Valenta, a messenger for Cut Cats Courier who was doored and run over by a truck in Wicker Park, resulting a broken pelvis, every one of his ribs being broken, and the bottom of his skull being shattered.
We'll be there all day, with vegan goodies for the ethics-minded, non-vegan goods for the butter eaters, and a gluten-free option. We'll have stacks and stacks of chocolate and frosting and cookies and sugar, and even a few savory options for those people born with a severely malformed sweet tooth. Bring lots of cash, because we'll have deals where you can stock up on delicious baked goods for the whole week. Every cent donated will be given to Dustin Valenta to try to defray some of his medical costs.
The Bike Lane will also be giving a 15% discount from anyone who donates. Need to stock up on tubes? Meaning to pick up some armwarmers or grease? Why not save money on what you were going to buy anyway, plus get a delicious cookie, plus know that you're helping out a member of Chicago's cycling community? It's a win-win-win situation.
