This is just bad news....I hope the poor souls get help for their self-destructive tendencies. Vandalizing and stealing just invites bad karma.

why do people need to rob places who's main purpose is to give back to the community? that's terrible. it'd still be terrible but not as hurtful if they robbed a place backed by billions of corporate dollars, go rob taco bell or something, leave the volunteer places alone. I have about 5 or 6 bikes i've been meaning to donate to them.

edit: oh wait maybe 4, i still want my road bike for now.

Didn't hear about this. Please fill me in and tell us how we can help. Do they need bikes, donations, man hours?

I'm sure they could use just about anything you were able to contribute. You could contact them.
