Caring for human beings seems like the best use of my time, homeless or not.

Homeless Bikes in Tennessee

The Chattanooga Community Kitchen and Outdoor Chattanooga have teamed up to provide bicycles for some of the 400 to 500 people who are sleeping on streets or in shelters each night.
See story here.
I wonder how hilly Chattanooga is compared with Seattle. Can't really see homeless people pumping up the hill to Nightwatch from Pioneer Square, but who knows?
When we were located in Belltown a decade ago, we did have a few homeless guys on bicycles. It beats walking everywhere. But doubtful that the shelters have bike racks.
