Kansas City Hipster Bike Collective Clip
Rolling with Kanasas City do-gooders this evening . . .
Help The 816 Bicycle Collective Overhaul The New Hub
Here's the mission statement for the ask that's very well-meaning but totally overestimates cyclist transit needs:
"We are a collective of individuals from diverse backgrounds working on a volunteer basis to rescue, repair and redistribute bicycles. We play a vital role for low income commuters in the Kansas City area, though we serve absolutely anyone who is open to the freedom that comes with learning how to fix your own bicycle, embraces our DIY recycled-bike model or cannot afford for-profit bike shop prices. We believe in empowerment through education and support the use of bicycles as a healthy and ecological means of transportation."
Again, this is a nice effort for hipster cyclist who enjoy venturing across Troost in order offer bike transit to a diverse community who, for the most part, doesn't want it.
