The Bicycle – a Gift of Independence

Mike Craver is a developmentally disabled employee at the Cottonwood Safeway that volunteers identified as needing a bicycle for transportation. I sent out a request, and Jimmy at Bike & Bean immediately stepped up and offered a BRAND NEW BIKE to help Mike out. Bike and Bean, led by Jimmy and helped out by his employees, pitched in and donated the bike to the VVCC (Verde Valley Cyclists Coalition), who in turn donated it to Mike.
Mike and his brother Larry came over on Monday night. I showed ’em how the gears work, got the bike adjusted, and gave ’em a safety presentation.
You wouldn’t believe how grateful they are!!
Just shows what can happen when we all work together… You Guys Rock!!
