Matthew Modine founder of the advocacy group "Bicycle for a Day" held a fundraising party for this project recently at Solar One, New York City’s first solar-powered “Green Energy, Arts, and Education
Center.” Modine plans to recycle New York City’s junk bikes and
distribute them around the world so more people will be able to
participate in "Bicycle for a Day." This project will debut in Iraq and
Afghanistan. Modine was also joined by a whole host of cycling
enthusiasts and promoters from the Consulate General of the Netherlands to Grammy Award winning beatbox artist Rahzel. Here is some what they had to say.
