Bikes for the homeless

Two Chattanooga, Tennessee organizations, The Chattanooga Community Kitchen and Outdoor Chattanooga, have teamed up to help homeless people get back on their feet by getting off their feet-- on bicycles. They'll operate by taking in donated bikes, fixing them up, then providing training, a helmet and a bike lock to homeless people.

A nice program in Tampa, Florida repairs bikes brought to them by homeless people. You can read more at Creative Loafing.
