I’ve been volunteering for the past 2 years with a group called Cycling into the Future. I’m really excited about this organization and its mission. They take the Recycling playbook and forget about the adults who are addicted to the automobile and instead focus on our next generation of leaders. They’ve created curriculum for grade 5 students where they learn how to bike on our roads.
Anyways, this program needs more bicycles so all grade 5’s they teach can have a bicycle. I know they need at least 6 bicycles for next week’s program at Elizabeth Ziegler school and that’s just one school. If you have a dusty bike (24″ or 26″) consider giving it ‘Cycling into the Future’ so they can pass it on to a grade 5 student. Bicycles love being passed around, especially to kids.
The KW Record has a bit more info on the bike drive – link – ‘The program is looking for bikes with 24- to 26-inch wheels. They can be dropped off this Saturday, between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. at the Stirling Avenue parking lot of the Kitchener Memorial Auditorium.’
If the Aud is too for to deliver the bike, I’ve heard you can also drop them off at the Berlin Bicycle Cafe too (Belmont Village).
