    I was wondering if I could be so bold as to ask you to be a vessel for a message. The message being an ad about a free bike maintenance and safety class for 10 people from south Durham neighborhoods. It’s a class organized by Clean Energy Durham and the applications are now open. The class will start mid January. In return for this training, trainees will be expected to organize bike-related activities in their neighborhood, paying it forward. If this would be something you’d be willing to help spread out, please contact me.
