from their site: “Velocipede Bike Project is a collectively run non-profit dedicated to helping people use bicycles as transportation. We collect donated, second-hand, and landfill-bound bikes, which we then use to teach people how to repair and build their own bicycles. We also provide affordable and safe refurbished bicycles and bicycle parts.”

and one more thing:
Urban Velo magazine out of Pittsburgh, is always looking for submissions to their: “I love riding in the city” series.
Check it out:
With the move to full color, we need new contributions that include high-resolution color photographs. And while weâ€™re looking for contributions from around the world, we still want them from our own country, our own state, even our own city.
Please take a few minutes to fill out this questionnaire.
The group carried a banner along with them that said, “Ride Solidarity.” Part of their tribute ride was recorded by Meaghan Wilbur, who is making a documentary about the white painted bicycle memorials known as the ghostbikes project.
It looks like she is using a site called kickstarter.com which allows people to indivdually contribute to film works in progress, as well as other creative endeavors.
On the same day, Miami held another memorial ride and in a true act of solidarity, both cities connected via a phone call. The Miami ride had at least 40 riders, but its a tad bit warmer down south.
The judge has set an initial trial date for May 3rd, so standby for more solidarity rides in NYC and Miami.
