|Event flier, ‘Bikes for Firestorm 2017 Victims’|
As a cyclist myself, here’s an especially meaningful benefit for victims of the North Bay fires. Southern Marin Fire District is hosting a bicycle giveaway for the victims of “Firestorm 2017,” 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 11, in the front parking lot of the Sonoma County Sheriff’s Office, 2796 Ventura Ave. in Santa Rosa. (Giveaways are also planned in Sonoma, Napa and Glen Ellen.) Please bring some proof of the residence address where you lost your house to the fire to receive a free replacement bicycle, complete with helmet. (And if you’d like to help, SMFD is accepting donations of new or slightly-used bicycles at any of its fire stations with the goal of securing 1,000 bicycles).
