Bike Recycle and Exchange Event April 19-21 2012

Ecole St. Cecilia School (610 Agate Crescent S.E., Calgary AB (west on Southland Dr. past Blackfoot)) is hosting their 3rd annual bicycle recycle and exchange event. Families are encouraged to donate to the school any bikes or parts that they have out-grown and have the opportunity to get another bike for the upcoming summer that will fit better. Those donating a working bike will receive a $10 voucher (per bike) that can be exchanged towards a different bike. All bikes will be sold on Saturday April 21 9:00am-1:00pm for $20 (max. one voucher per bike). We are also opening up our collections this year to include used bike parts. This is a great way to make some space in the garage or shed and know that you have helped your friends and community by reducing the need to purchase a new bike when your family has one that is no longer needed. It also encourages the reuse of our bicycles, helps ensure that kids have easy access to healthy activities. Bicycles and parts that do not find a home during our event will be donated to other organizations or recycled. We are accepting all bikes from tricycles to adults. Bike drop offs will be accepted Thursday April 19 and Friday April 20 from 3:30 to 6:30 pm each day. Last year we had 148 bikes find new homes, this time we hope for 200.
