Got unwanted bike? Give it a good home

This morning, I've taken calls from folks offering to donate six bikes for homeless people.

The calls came in response to our story on the Tour de Ranch, an event set at Lakewood Ranch April 24 to gather bicycles for homeless people. It's a gift of mobility that could literally help some living in the woods or back alleys get back on their feet.

Martha Childress of the One-Stop Center in Bradenton says if you have a bike in good working order, but no longer in use, to give her call and she'll arrange to pick it up and make sure it's passed along to someone who can really use it.

Martha's office number is 747-1509. You can reach her after hours at 749-1582.
