    Standing for Tour De Fence

    Had this passed onto me By Ross. Thinks he needs to be kept busier at work.

    So what other uses are there for old Bike Parts?

    That's a pretty cool fence. I wonder how many people don't even notice what it's made of.

    Neat idea. That would fall under the concept of re-use rather than recycling.

    I had the opportunity to visit one of those places that accepts donated bikes and allows neighbor kids to rebuild for themselves a useable bicycle. Sadly, the majority of the donated bikes were disassembled and sold as scrap metal.

    Thats a pity. Some parts are irrecoverable, of course, but I try to encourage people to use this charity that's based close to where I live. They recover and refurbish old bike and sell them pretty cheap, as well as running cycling and bike maintenance classes. And some of the bikes they rebuild get donated to developing countries through this crowd.

    Much better than turning them into fenceposts, imo.
    There have been many days when I haven't felt like riding, but there has never been a day when I was sorry I rode.

    There's a cafe around here that has a bike rack made of old frames.
