REI supports FABB

This week we picked up our latest donation from REI Fairfax, including sets of tire levers and patch kits for us to give to needy cyclists, a first aid kit for our upcoming FABB Rides, and panniers to help carry all the supplies we use at various events throughout the year. Thank you REI!

Unfortunately our REI friend Rhonda Krafchin was on vacation so we didn't get a picture of her, but that's me with my trailer at REI picking up the donations.

Notice the gentleman in lime green to the right bending over his bike. At the same time we were there we ran into FABB's Fionnuala Quinn's husband Skip who had stopped by REI to check out their bike gear. About a year or so ago Skip started bike commuting one day a week and became hooked on bicycling. Now he commutes often and uses his bike to run short errands. After his REI visit he was headed to the local grocery store to pick up a few supplies.

Read about REI's earlier donation of our rain/sun shelter. REI carries a full line of bikes and bike gear.

As we arrived the crew from Bikes for the World was just packing up after a successful bike collection hosted by REI. We appreciate REI's support for FABB and for all the other community work they do with other organizations.


I love REI - specifically REI Fairfax - for how much stuff it just does RIGHT in terms of store policies and helping customers. I'm glad to see them doing this too!
