Pedal power launches summer pledge drive.

SHARE Pedal power launches summer pledge drive.

Today starts our summer pledge drive, and we’re kicking it off in style with 13 Dahon commuter bicycles to give away. Every hour, from 6am to to 10pm, we’ll be holding a drawing for a Dahon Mariner D7 folding commuter bike, courtesy of the good folks over at Kozy’s Cyclery. Pledge any amount on June 17 and you’ll automatically be entered into the drawing. And once you make a pledge you’ll be in the drawing all day long, so it’s best to pledge early for more chances to win. Click here to pledge now! Thanks, in advance, for all your support over the next several days. Pledge drives, as you know, are a necessary part of public radio. We’re going to make the best of it and hopefully have a little fun along the way. Thanks!
