    Wow, can you say innovative. This is the perfect way to bring back bicycle messengers. In addition, this is an outlet for youth entrepreneurs who sell produce from their community farms. Check out millvillage farms which is a youth community gardening program that teaches kids how to grow and sell. If you wanted to extend the youth programs, teach them how to build these bikes and then how to sell them to other youth who are in programs such as millvillage farms.

      Absolutely - great ideas on how keep the chain going and empower youth to use a tool like this to their advantage, and in turn help other youth. And thanks for the tip about Millvillage Farms, I looked it up and looks like they are doing amazing work: http://www.millvillagefarms.org/
