Penfield Rotary and Penfield Recreation will sponsor the 9th annual Community Bike Drop on Saturday, October 5 at Penfield Community Center, 1985 Baird Rd. from 10:00 am until 1:00 pm.
Keep those old or unwanted bikes out of our landfills by donating them to a good cause. All bicycles collected will be donated to R Community Bikes, Inc. for repair and redistribution to needy children and adults in the Rochester area. All types of bikes are needed, including children's tricycles, toddler plastic bikes and bike parts. Receipts will be available.
"We are looking forward to another successful year of collecting used bikes, bike parts, and accessories," said Chris Bilow, Director of Penfield Recreation. "To date we have collected nearly 1,500 bikes from the Penfield community to give to R Community Bikes."
R Community Bikes, Inc. is a grassroots 501c3 organization that collects and repairs used bicycles for distribution, free of charge, to Rochester's most needy children and adults. Its mission is to meet the basic transportation needs of those in the community who depend on bikes to get to work and training sessions, as well as for recreation.
