Although we could never manage to ride our bikes to Communality with two little ones all the way from Wilmore, I know it's a community value--to be "green", and in the process get some much needed exercise and fresh air. I think it's a great value to have, and one that we hope to uphold in our next season of life (in Laos). For now, we will support this value and live it out vicariously through you all. And part of that is attempting to win a bike for the Gladdings, who are in need of one. I haven't asked them if this is okay, but hey, who would be against an innocent attempt at getting a free bike?! We came across this bike on a friends' blog who are living out a life of simplicity and environmentalism (in Laos). They don't own one, but I'm sure they would be happy if they won one. The way you "enter" the contest is by putting the link to their webpage into a blog, like I am doing here. So I am not trying to advertise their bike and promote "buying", but I am linking you all to their page in hopes that we "might" be adding one of these to our community! I know, I know. It's silly to really believe we can win this. But someone wins one each week...and it could be us! (Us meaning our community...)
So in theory, by posting their site to our blog, we are entering ourselves into the weekly bike contest.
