We just learned the sad news that our nonprofit friend, Blackstone Bicycle Works, lost 400 bikes in a fire over Labor Day weekend. The Hyde Park Herald current issue has the full story.

Blackstone Bicycle Works, housed at the Experimental Station in the Hyde Park and Woodlawn neighborhoods, is one of several local youth bike education nonprofits that works hard to offer bike services and education to kids and neighbors in underserved communities.
