Heh...I went out on anysoldier.com and found a marine unit that was asking for bike gear. I sent over a couple of boxes of tubes, tools, helmets, lights and such. Got a nice letter back from the unit saying that the bikes were their basic transportation around their (huge) base. Pretty cool folks actually.
