    Texas Together

    For those who aren't aware, MountainBikeTx.com features a program called Texas Together.

    Currently we are looking for suggested recipients. They can be local to you, statewide, or even nation- or worldwide. So, if you know of a worthwhile charity/organization/etc. please let me know.

    ...and remember, Together we can do more!

    Note: Needing money towards your next bike purchase does not constitute a charity or non-profit.

    You can get helmets at thrift stores fairly cheap. Depending on the store, maybe $4-5 each, but usually they aren't the latest designs, but at least they will be protected. Check to make sure the helmets are still in good shape and have all the strap parts.

    As far as tubes, if they puncture frequently because of thorns or sharp objects, then I'd suggest some sort of tire protection. Since I like to trim the weight off my bike, I use Tyvek (folded as double or triple layer) as a tire liner, but I'm not sure how well it will work in places full of long thorns. (I used slime tire liners before switching to Tyvek).

    2010 is fairly wide open, so we are again looking for suggestions. Check out the Texas Together page for more information.

    We realize that the holidays are right around the corner, but consider supporting this program by making a donation, as well. $1 or $1,000,000,000, size doesn't matter (at least not in this case).

    Thanks!
