Books on Wheels would like to thank all the kids that rode around today, along with Lindsey and Tracy for setting up the event. The kids donated books, raised money, and did a great job of riding bike, drinking lemonade, and eating cookies. It was really fun and exciting! Thanks for all the support!

"I came across a bike after finishing my coffee at Crossroads last week. It was tagged with a "free bike" sign and not being one to pass up a deal, I threw on my rack and drove it home. A second look at this bike and I knew I had no use for it. I am happy with my reliable Giant and not looking for another hobby. I had to find another home for it and that home is Books On Wheels. They will put it to much better use than I would. I know that there are garages full of unused bikes out there doing nobody any good. Find a new home for your old bike and get some garage space back for your trouble. Read more about Books on Wheels below.
