What is the gLove orphanage?

The gLove orphanage pairs-up mismatched gloves and mittens

so they can be reused by the Portland bike community.

two years

Good grief, it's been two years since a post went up. The gLove orphanage has been active, I assure you. gLoves fly off the shelf (err, display peg) every time I get a stash over to the Community Cycling Center.

As with any project, enthusiasm comes and goes. But I just picked up a bike bucket full of potential new pairs today and have the bug!

The new lot has been washed and spent this afternoon drying in the sun. Minimal mending needs to be done, so more pairs will be up for sale (for $1!!!) very soon. A number of donations have arrived this year with a matching mate.

Thank you to everyone who has contributed to the zany mission.

Just a reminder to collectors out there:

Don't be fooled by lost socks!
