Mobility is freedom
“I’d always see abandoned bikes around town, and one day I just thought, why not give them back to the community?”
Our door is open to everyone
“I’m a people person. I love people without judging their gender, religion, or differences. Our door is open to everyone; we don’t judge.“
Empowerment through creativity
Heinz Thomas-Vital and Peter Levine
“I’m looking out for those who give back to the community. Without them, there won’t be a community to do it for.“
