Bicycle Lemonade Helps the BOCANABEACHBIKERS

  |   Uncategorized

In November, Bicycle Lemonade built and sent 8 kids bikes to La Bocana, Mexico with a guy from Durango. La Bocana is a little fishing village in the far south peninsula, population of 600 people. One bike went to a little girl in the club who had no bike to ride as none in the village fit. Nice work Bicycle Lemonade. Recycle them bikes! Check out the BOCANABEACHBIKERS web site here.
