Friday Dec. 7th: Toy Drive by SF Yellow Bike y SF Bike Party

SAN FRANCISCO, CA — San Francisco Bike Party (SFBP) and San Francisco Yellow Bike Project (SFYBP) are joining forces on Friday, December 7, 2012 to gather toys and bikes for children for the upcoming holiday season. The toys will be given to a local fire station at the end of the ride on Friday night. The bikes will be inspected and repaired by SFYBP before being distributed to kids via a school-based bike swap. 

The two organizations will be collecting toys and bikes for one night only during the monthly SFBP ride. They are asking the public to please bring any new and unwrapped toys to any of the resting locations during the ride. The ride will gather at McCovey Cove around 7:30 pm. There will be two stops at South Park in SOMA and Pier 7 along the Embarcadero. Please check SFBP’s twitter (@sfbikeparty) for the rest area drop off times on Friday, December 7th. The ending location will be Showplace Triangle at the intersection of 16th and 8th streets at approximately 11pm.
People who ride with SFBP and bring a toy or bike parts will be given a spoke card.  

The organizations want to encourage all of the community, including those who cannot ride SFBP, to give toys and any used bikes or bike parts to this toy drive.  
San Francisco Bike Party is on the first Friday of every month, and their mission is to build community through biking.
