Hurricane Sandy Relief Ride - Part 3

As some of you may know we've been heading to the Rockaways and Staten Island (Roy aka Rthuey on ADV Rider) to deliver supplies/donations to the victims of the storm.

My first run to the Rockaways was with my wife in our truck, The second was with a few guys from ADV Rider on our bikes.... I would like to do a third run this Friday (11/23) combining both bikes and cages.

I am trying to find out which is the best location to pick up supplies and meet. Right now there are 3 locations we are looking into: 1. 520 Clinton (Church of St. Luke and St. Matthew) 2. Astoria Recovers/ Matrix Gym, and 3. Flushing Town Hall.

I have a call into the church in Brooklyn and Flushing Town Hall but have not heard back from them yet.

The plan is to meet at one of these 3 locations, pick up supplies and volunteers (if room is available in cages), deliver to the Rockaways or somewhere on the south shore. Ted (GridCrosser on ADV Rider) had mentioned going to Island Park.

We would probably meet around 9am and head back around 4pm, possibly stopping somewhere in Astoria for coffee and BS.

We'll keep you posted as to where to meet and time. Let us know if you are interested in joining us.

John

Had a great time helping in the Rockaways last Friday, even the Rangie got a chance to play in the sand.
