World Bicycle Relief. Please find a video of the delivery here. With the assistance of a loyal and convenient bicycle, orphans are able to drastically reduce their travel time to and from school, which used to require approximately two hours, and work. Also, one orphan was able to visit a far-reaching family member, for the first time in two years, because of the bicycle that he received. Recently, the Focus on Children Now (FCN) non-profit organization adopted Bikes 4 Orphans as a branch of their organization. Bikes 4 Orphans has been noticeably busy in the past and looks to continue improving the lives of underprivileged orphans in the future.
Publicity has been instrumental in continuing the promotion of Bikes 4 Orphans and the idea of spreading a positive message. Articles have been written in Pasadena Now, Crescenta Valley Weekly, Glendale News-Press, and the Los Angeles Times regarding work which has been accomplished by Bikes 4 Orphans. Recently, Bikes 4 Orphans was a feature story on KNBC4 and the video may be viewed here. In the near future, October 26th, 2013, Bikes 4 Orphans will be hosting their first annual Hike-a-thon and Bike-a-thon in order to raise awareness and proceeds for the project. Event information may be viewed at http://b4ofundraiser.blogspot.com/. Please come out to support Bikes 4 Orphans and the future of the group.

|Specialized Body Geometry Gel Long Finger Glove|
Lastly, the BG Gel glove is comfortable because of the microwipe cloth, located on the thumb of each glove. More and more producers of gloves are including a friendly material on the thumb of the glove. With Specialized, the microwipe cloth is ideal for wiping a runny nose without irritating skin.
Overall, the multi-faceted and superior Specialized Body Geometry Gel glove is ideal for any cyclist but specifically mountain bikers. Through incorporating comfortable gel padding, Wiretap technology, and a microwipe cloth, it is possible to ride and explore for an extended period of time without the need to remove a glove for any small tasks. I highly recommend this particular glove for anyone experiencing hand pain while riding due to rough terrain, a lack of cushion, or highly sensitive hands.
