Thanks Mark! I know Shannon is very fond of you too! She really had a big time this past year with your daughter and helping her ride with a clutch.

For those of you who frequent other forums, would you mind posting the following?

“Helping riders up one penny at a time”…

Sounds simple doesn’t it? The members of Allthingsmoto.com have teamed up to do just this. A member who goes by the screenname “Macho393” came up with the idea after meeting a few members from RiderDown.org in October at the Fifth Annual Garrett Berg Remembering Those Who Rode race. He knew there was something that ATM could do to help out the RiderDown folks, no matter how small it would seem. He remembered how his kids had once done a penny drive and over a one month period had collected nearly $3,000. The mission is simple, collect your pennies until the next GMB race. We will tally up all the change and donate the entire amount to RiderDown. Members have also placed jars at local shops to gain more support for RiderDown and hopefully spread the word. So save your pennies and let’s do what we can to help our fellow riders up!

For more information please visit: Rider Down - Penny Drive!!! or Penny Drive for RIDERDOWN.ORG

Thanks! And remember....save those pennies!
Thanks Char - that's awesome! Any idea how many other sites picked this up? I'm wondering just how many RD Penny Jars there are out there collecting the love......

So I just heard that we may have a couple more RD PennyDrive jars going into a couple bike shops in Georgia! I'm curious as to just how many actual "RD Jars there are out there - does anyone have a clue?

Maybe we need one of those Google Maps that you can mark the locations on to keep track.

Regardless, it's gonna be a hoot watchin' Char count these at the next GMB!

I know my jar is going to keep her busy for awhile

It would be cool to see all the places they are at

Tatonka,
I am finally able to get out and about after the series of surgeries. I'll get a jar into our favorite shop here and get y'all a picture of the jar and the staff at the shop (John Kiley's Cycle World, Pensacola, Florida) to post up as you see fit. Sorry for the delay here.

Bill

I went to your site recently and could not find the jar label. Do you have a link to that so we can get more jars out there? I have been wanting to get a project going with my youngest son and this would be perfect.

Thank you.
