I needed a part for my city bike that I use to run errands and go to the grocery store. I discovered Second Cycle ten years ago when it was in an alley off MLK street. Seeing the place, and the friendly and helping attitude of the staff then made me think: what a cool idea! Second Cycle provides space for people to learn how to maintain and fix their own bicycles, helping people to build confidence in themselves. And, for many, making it possible for them to safely commute to their jobs.

Second Cycle's expansion effectively doubles their space, allows for social distancing, and longer term, the ability to have more bicycle related events. I've supported Second Cycle for several years and will continue to do so as they are such an important local asset. Please join me in supporting this great local resource!

To help give incentives for your donations, I have been making bread for over 40 years, and now make sourdough bread each week. I make sourdough crackers and pancakes with the leftover sourdough. For those of you who are able to make significant contributions, I can offer you samples of my delicious homemade bread, pancakes or crackers.

$50- a bag of sourdough crackers (about two dozen) or one batch of sourdough pancakes (about one dozen. They freeze well and you can pop in the toaster or use toaster oven to reheat).

$100- one loaf of sourdough bread (weight about 1.5 pounds)

$200- two loaves of sourdough bread, or one loaf plus crackers and pancakes.

$500- all of the above plus a copy of Ken Forkish's book "Flour Water Salt Yeast", and a 1/2 hour Zoom lesson from me on key aspects of sourdough bread making.
