On Saturday, 8th December, we'll have a giant Bicycle Garage Sale at the Project Shed.  (note: 8th, not 1st as originally advised). By now, our volunteers have restored dozens of bikes to their former glory, simply far too good to be scrapped for just their frames to make wheelchairs. They were either donated, or were given to us by the Police - unclaimed property. For example: this Scott Racing Bike (*), light enough to lift with one finger (see picture right). Yes, new, they sell for $3,000. Read that again: Three grand! [** Sorry, I've just been advised this has been sold from under my feet! But I understand we have another one suitable for bike racing enthusiasts: this one apparently sells new for $7,000! Picture coming up. Ed.]  They are ready to be sold at very attractive prices to the public, just in time for Christmas. But wait, there will be more! Music, Sausage Sizzle, Tours of the Shed...  
We'll need manpower [no, Henrietta, 'manpower' does not exclude women! ☺], so put it into your diary now.
