Pocatello is a rather small quiet community located in the south east of Idaho. There are a tightly knit group here that have taken on the great responsibility of building a community space. The Greater space goes by the name of the Power house (http://www.myspace.com/powerhousecollective). These folks have actually bought this building and are currently renovating it. Within this 105 year old building is Poky Free Bikes. It is almost more exciting to see smaller projects in smaller town than the more established projects in big cities. These folks are dedicated and passionate about what they are doing. Poky Free Bikes does not require any money consequently they also do not carry any new parts. they are fully volunteer run still manage to exist in a relatively small and economically depressed community. This is a good example of how accesable the creation of these spaces are.
