Thank-you, Abby, good to hear there is a program in place for the
abandoned bikes left on the playa!

However, every year they receive large numbers of bikes left on the playa each year, and end up setting aside and taking extra special care of a bunch of them for burners next year to purchase at very fair prices. They also sell various bike accessories such as lights, el-wire kits, baskets, car racks, locks, fat seats, and bells), and they provide bike repairs. Finally, Burners can store bikes with Kiwanis for next year.
