|kellissima||01:50 pm - a loaner for Aug. 16-29?|
I'm going to be in town for about ten days to do some job shadowing at SPL...and I'd love to have a bikey to ride while I'm around. Anyone have anything junky I could borrow for that time? I'm about 5'5", if that helps. I'll bake you cookies or bring you a six-pack or some other delightful thing.

sadly all my bikes are far too large.
but, you should definitely get a bike and come ride with point83
while you're in town. potential source of bike loans AND cookie/beer consumption.
Well, I've heard y'all are fasties and I'm a bit of a slowpoke, myself. But I do love cookie/beer consumption, so I'll try to make it out.

point83 rides are not fast. pretty easy going speed actually. and if you say you're new someone will keep an eye on you and make sure you dont get lost
they're a good group of bike people. ive had piles of fun riding with them when im around. karaokeswimmydrinkyawesomeness

the group has changed considerably over the last three years, matching the advancing age of its members, and their growing love of karaoke as a group.
You can stop by the Bike Shack (www.bikeshack.org) on any of the volunteer hours. We've loaned bikes for deposit before for out-of-towners and I think we have a few things your size. You'll want ot look to borrow a helmet as they're required in the city of Seattle as well as being a very good idea.
Ah, great idea, I will definitely stop by. Should I phone first to make sure someone is around? And doncha worry, I was planning to bring my helmet down with me.
Look at the calendar on the website for manned volunteer hours. I only guarantee Mondays and Thursdays as they're days I or a person I know volunteer.

Sorry, I did look at the calendar, I just wanted to gauge whether folks always show up for their shifts.
