Meet Humble Sons!
Bikes for Tykes is now
Humble Sons Bike Co
You may have been aware of a local non-profit that provides bicycles to tykes all over Green Country, Bikes for Tykes. Well, they've changed their name but not their mission.
Humble Sons Bike Co was started in 2008 by James Whorton and Tommy Chavez and they have gone from distributing 22 bikes their first year to more than 1,000 last year.
From their homepage:
A bike is so much to a kid. It’s joy. It’s freedom. It’s adventure. It’s good times with friends. It becomes central to kid’s life teaching responsibility, the importance of safety, and the awesome responsibility of independence and self-reliance."
We’re here to make all of that happen.
We give brand new bikes, helmets, and locks to kids that need them.
We think every kid should have a bike.
Visit their website now and check'em out!
Avery Drive Cleanup
Avery Drive & Hwy 51
Time to "pick it up", both in your training schedule and along TBC's stretch of Avery Drive near Sandsprings.
Many hands make light work and we repay your efforts with fresh off the grill hotdogs with all the fixins and your favorite beverage! What could be better than that and the warm feeling you get from performing a public service?!
Wayne Mark invites everyone to join us. He'll have gloves, trash bags, and pick up sticks. All we need is YOU! Usually takes an hour or less depending on the turnout, so not a big commitment for a great service.
Watch your email and the website should weather threaten to postpone our efforts.
