The Yellow Bike Project could be started in any town. Here’s how our letter went and now we have Yellow Bikes.
As owner of New Milford Bike, I would like to introduce a program that would promote more efficient transportation, build hope and trust among each other, assist in policing, burn calories, and get unused bikes under needy riders; Free Community Bikes. These free to borrow bikes are providing to those who otherwise use polluting and inefficient cars, a means to get around town for their personal use, or just plain recreation and may provide a solution to prevent other peoples bikes from being stolen.
We provide to the community, and no charge to anyone, simple single speed bike, to be used by anybody at any time, at their own risk, and would just request that they be left on Main Street after their use so that they could be available for the next rider.
The bikes would be painted yellow, to identify them as community bikes and would regularly be picked up and serviced by our shop, to maintain their performance and insure their safety. The bikes would also be identified by a sign attached to the frame.

With your support and approval, we can begin to set the Yellow Bike Project into effect, with no expense to your municipality. Of course, your local residents would respond positively to this unique town endeavor, but more important, we will all be gaining a real sense of community involvement as we will be helping all of those who are in need.
Thank you for your interest and consideration, as we are excited about getting started on this project as soon as possible.
Give it a try and give something to your community…
