I do enjoy this forum and find that is filled with useful information and plenty of active and useful members, which is why;
I wanted to inform you folks about a project that is underway called "Project Freedom" it is a joint effort being undertaken by members to build a customized wheel-chair accessible electric-bike in which the wheel-chair bound individual would be able to roll up into and go for a ride and still remain and drive from their chair. The young man is in his 20's and is forced to rely on others to ask for help to get groceries or just to get out for a ride to clear his head; we aim to build this for him and give him the freedom we all desire. How would you feel if you've never gone faster than your shoulders would allow to push you? or if you had to ask people for help before you can go anywhere? as a man, how would you feel.
So far we have raised 300$ and gathered a crew with willing volunteers who have the capability and expertise to build this. We are like minded individuals who want to help a fellow bike-enthusiast gain independence and freedom.
at this point we need more attention, more donations and if possible just simply spread the word!
please do what you can, every little thing counts.
