your used racks.
I’ve heard a lot of good things about ReRack — a Portland-based company that buys and sells used roof racks and components — and now they’ve teamed up with the Bicycle Transportation Alliance. It makes sense. After all, for many people who ride bikes, having some sort of way to carry them around on a car is a fact of life.
On February 6-7, ReRack will host a used rack collection drive. They’ll then purchase the racks from the BTA who will then put the money toward their Walk + Bike programs.
ReRack found Bo Grayzel says they’re reaching out to bike lovers to cast a wider net of donors: “Our business challenge is to reach the folks who own racks that they haven’t used in years, and bring them into the shop so we can pay them.” Sounds good to me. Here are more details:
- Roof rack drive & fundraiser
