Update on Bikes for Refugees Project

bikes for refugeesBikes were moved from various storage spaces on January 8 with the help of 15 volunteers. There were two repair sessions in January with a number of volunteers, and so far 36 adult bikes have gotten a clean bill of health!

With help from some high school students 39 more bikes were brought into the Citadel storage space, and there is another repair session scheduled for Friday, Februry 5. Citadel Recreation will be providing some refreshments. A special thanks to Peter for everything he’s doing to make the sessions comfortable, and to Mothers Pizza for providing delicious pizza!

The team at Cyclesmith accepted another 44 kids bikes from our storage container. That brings our total kids bikes to 75!
