Hey gang! So, I want to bring the Bookcycle back for the spring. But she’s in sore need of 1) a new back wheel and tire, 2) a tune-up, 3) starter books.
I’m feeling out the idea of crowdsourcing the $100-$150 bucks to get her running again (I’m happy to itemize the costs) & asking for a few book donations.
What do you think the best route to take would be?
