The Kickstand aims for neighborhood pedal power
January 2008

The Gainesville Community Bicycle Project, The Kickstand, aims to establish a non-profit organization that will provide free or inexpensive bicycle-related services to all persons without discrimination. Since we believe that the bicycle represents the most affordable, healthy, and environmentally sound form of transportation and recreation, we seek to encourage people to learn to maintain a bicycle themselves and to use it in a responsible manner. We will provide assistance in acquiring a reliable bicycle and scheduled access to knowledgeable volunteers and quality tools. It is our belief that by providing these services we can help build neighborhood involvement and create greater paths for communication and cooperation.
