I'm new to the Boston area (Waltham) and starting the challenge tomorrow. I realize that as I do this I am very lucky to have a gym membership. There were many times when I've tried to stay fit without a lot of resources. One way I did this was by bike riding. I now have a gym, but little to no storage (and a baby, so relatively little free time) and I would like to GIVE SOMEONE MY BIKE.
I have what I think is a really nice women's Marin mountain bike. I bought it about 6 years ago but I think it's still in pretty good shape because I usually stored it indoors. I'm 5'9" so it's sized to fit a frame like mine. It does need a little work- new tire tubes and it needs the handle bars securely reattached. They were removed when we moved across country. I would recommend for safety reasons that this be done by a bike shop. The wheels are detachable, it has a nice cushy seat, and I also have a helmet and a bike lock.
I would really like to give this to someone doing BFL who doesn't have other resources to do cardio, or can't afford a gym membership. It would also be convenient if someone lived fairly close to Waltham and could pick it up or meet me somewhere near by. I would also like to pass it along this week sometime since it's sitting in my living room :). I may get no replies to this or I may get a ton. I'll respond first come first serve. I really hope I can pass it on to someone who will enjoy it.
That's awesome! You've already mastered Bill's principle of reciprocity. Giving from the heart is wonderful -- I'm sure it will come back to you in myriad ways! Hope somebody jumps on the offer -- especially the "right" person who will be oh-so-grateful! Blessings happen in such ways. Best of luck on the BFL path...
