bcn began as a way to share my bicycle commuting story, and to motivate myself to get out and pedal to work everyday. Online, readers have visited from all over the globe, but bicycle commuting awareness in south central PA has not blossomed from my point of view. A paper version of bcn is intended to be shared in offices, at homes, and during car pools around south central PA, so that more than just those with internet access, or those who are actively searching for this information, can find it. It is hoped that people will pass it along, leave a copy in a different location than where they found it, and be motivated to take the commuting plunge themselves.
A paper version, unlike this online journal, is not free to produce, and as a result I am open to donations to support this effort. If you would like to support bcn you may make a paypal donation through the button at the top of the left-hand column. The author of bcn is gainfully employed and not seeking to make a profit currently from bcn, but always appreciates a hand in a goodwill effort such as this. All donations will go towards offsetting the printing and distribution costs of bcn. The premiere zine version of bcn will be available this spring, and will be a compilation of online posts. Anyone making a donation of $1.00 or more will receive a print copy via postal mail if a shipping address is provided. Email me to find out how to obtain multiple copies for distribution, especially if you are a local or regional zine distro.
