We received an important email this week from Bevan Harris, our Giant Bicycles rep, whose territory encompasses greater New York City and all of Long Island, including the metropolitan area devastated by Hurricane Sandy.
Bevan's email was a plea for help. The world's largest bicycle manufacturer has donated a large quantity of new bicycles to be distributed as transportation relief to people most affected by the storm.
Bevan was seeking help assembling 100 Revel 2 mountain bikes that were delivered to the Recycle-A-Bicycle warehouse in Long Island City, in the borough of Queens, and next to the East River. .
By the end of the day, we informed Bevan that we would be there, on his designated day at his designated time, with our truck and three bicycle mechanics, assembly stands, tools and support equipment.
We will keep you informed on this worthy project as it progresses.
