Bike recycling in Scotland

At last night's Bike Recycling work session, a new volunteer showed up. His name's Jason, and he shared with us his recent experiences in Scotland with The Bike Station, a "bicycle recycling and cycling promotion charity."
TBS's scope and scale are quite a bit more extensive than our Bicycle Recycling Program, but it definitely serves as an admirable model for us to emulate. Check it out, and if you haven't already, come by the BRP shop and see what we're up to. We just started working on children's bikes for the holidays.
