Last year our family collected over 60 bikes IN ONE DAY for a local, grassroots organization called Bikes 4 Humanity. They collect bikes for communities in Africa, and the Boston chapter we work with collects specifically to send to Botswana.

The bikes we collected last Spring are nearly ready to be shipped but there’s still room in the large container and we’re trying to fill it to the max as it is very costly to send to Africa.

If you have an outgrown bike of any kind and in any shape – or even just spare bike parts – please drop it off on our lawn (17 Hayden Lane, Bedford) any time between now and July 24.

Lily has created a flyer about this year’s collection (click this link to view or print the Click this link to view or print the 2017 Bikes for Humanity Drop-off flyer). If you have a place to post the flyer or don’t mind sharing this email with some friends we would be very grateful.

Thank you in advance!
