This is the second year that fellow bike riders from the Clarington Cycling Club, Seniors On Spokes, and Durham Outdoors Club cleaned out their garages of unused bikes. Many members collected bikes from friends and neighbours as well. Bob Astley has been a great help delivering the bikes to the Not For Profit Community Bike Shop in Peterborough.
The bikes are reconditioned by volunteers and placed on sale to support the program.
Through the generosity of members, I delivered 40 bikes in 2018, and 82 bikes this year for a combined total of 122 used bicycles.
Dan Shetler also arranged for several parts donations.
