NeighborGoods Helps You Join CicLAvia

October 6, 2010 in Biking in LA, Downtown

On Tuesday Blogging.LA’s own Will Campbell wrote about this weekend’s CicLAvia, an event happening Sunday which will close 7.5 miles of L.A. streets to motorized vehicles, turning them over to cyclists, joggers and walkers.

Now joining the fun and helping you get in on it, too – NeighborGoods.net.

We’ve written about NeighborGoods before. NeighborGoods founder and CEO is my friend, Micki Krimmel (you may also know her around the ‘net as Mickipedia.) She’s come up with an innovative way to save money and help your friends and neighbors, while reducing waste and storage of unnecessary stuff. You can learn about the broader strokes here.

Here’s where it all comes together: NeighborGoods has partnered with CicLAvia, so if you don’t have a bike you can borrow one from a neighbor. Have a bike to lend? Add it to your NeighborGoods inventory to share.

Check out the bikes available and reserve one for CicLAvia. We’ll look forward to riding with you on the streets of L.A.

PS- Even if you’re not able to make it to CicLAvia, you should still sign up at NeighborGoods.net. Do a friend or neighbor a favor; loan them something they need that’s just gathering dust in your garage anyway. Hell, borrow some of my stuff. Need a power drill, but don’t want to buy one just for that one project? I’ve got two. Check it out.

How to Buy Less and Share More

Need a ladder for a one-time project but don’t want to buy one? Out of town and want to borrow a bike for the weekend? Do you have a garage or attic full of stuff that you only use once a year? If so, NeighborGoods can help.

NeighborGoods is an innovative place where you can save and earn money just by sharing stuff with your friends. You can choose to share your stuff only with people you know, or you can expand your network and rent your lawnmower to a stranger, you decide. You can also post an alert to your NeighborGoods community when you need something.

If you’re still not sure exactly how it works, check out the short video below that explains how NeighborGoods can make your life a lot easier and a lot less cluttered. Oh, and you just might save the world too.
