"The bicycle is the most civilized conveyance known to man." -Iris Murdoch

89* and counting

Leave a comment

Over the past two years, Freewheel Collective has granted at least 89 bikes. In September 2006, we started collecting signed liability waivers from students that took bikes away from Freewheel.

*If anything, 89 is an underestimate of the number of bikes we’ve granted during this time.  For whatever reason, some people have probably slipped through the system, receiving a bike without depositing a waiver.

From 2004-2006, Freewheel granted something in the neighborhood of 130 bicycles, from its shop in Ronkonkoma at the now-defunct Long Island Freespace to its austere beginnings as a club on the Stony Brook Campus.

I’m not sure how many bikes were granted in the Freewheel Huntington era from 2002-2004.
