2 down, 1 to go....for now!

Saturday's booklet release event was definitely a success, and a more detailed report, and photos, will follow shortly. But for now, I wanted to let everyone know about our third and final booklet related event for this month.

Ride & Talk with Ezra Caldwell

Saturday, March 27, 2010

1:00pm - 5:00pm

Hot Metal Bridge Faith Community
2700 Jane Street
Pittsburgh, PA

Join BRICKS for Young Adults, with Urban Velo & Bike Pgh, for a ride & talk with bike builder and cancer survivor Ezra Caldwell.

Ride will start at 1pm at a to-be-determined location, and will end (around 3pm) at the Hot Metal Bridge Faith Community on the Southside. Here Ezra will talk about bikes, his cancer experience, and The Assless, the special bike he build while dealing with cancer.

This event is FREE (you know how BRICKS likes to do it). Attendees will also get a copy of the BRICKS for Young Adults Cancer Awareness & Resource guide, that includes a submission from Ezra!

Ezra is SUPER awesome and I think people would really like to hear him speak. You may have read about him in Urban Velo a while back.

You can read more about him in his blog Teaching Cancer to Cry

Here is an article about him that was in Urban Velo #3

If youd like to join us just for the talk, please plan to arrive at HMBFC by about 3pm. Those biking can take advantage of the cool bike racks that will be provided by Bike Pgh, complete with bike valets!

Hope to see you there!
