bike drive for Working Bikes Cooperative

Neighborhood high school students Madeleine Senko and Madeline Lindsey are collecting used bikes and bike parts that can be repaired and used to help others in need of transportation on Sat., 7/11, 9 a.m. - 3 p.m. at Beverly Bank, 1908 W.
103rd St. Bikes will be donated to Working Bikes Cooperative, a volunteer, non-profit organization that repairs donated bicycles and ships them to communities in need around the world. Many of these bikes will end up providing affordable transportation to people in developing countries. Any bike is a welcome donation. Bikes and bike parts, even if they are broken, rusted or old will be gratefully accepted. Last year almost 100 bikes were donated at the Beverly Bike Drive. If you need pick-up or more information call 773-238-4044 or 773-233-5143.
