Upon finding out that one of our fellow BF members was about to ship out overseas to serve our country, it struck me that we could, as an online community, help our fellow members who serve in the military by sending them care packages for the little things that might mean a lot to them.
Besides their "regular" needs, how cool would it be for them to receive
cycling-related gifts like DVDs, Magazines, Books, Posters, Gear, etc...?
We could adopt them as our own and do our small part in supporting them
with the simple things that their non-cycling family & friends might miss.
If you are a member of the military about to go overseas, please let us know so that we could
upport you. Tell us what type of cycling you like (Road Biking, Mountain Biking, Urban, etc...).
Here is a great website that is approved by The Government with sites that have been pre-screened. We can show our support for the troops in general with contributions of gifts or by financially supporting the groups listed...

And to all those serving, thank you and Godspeed.
