Boys & Girls Club Bike Exchange
The WWBPA is Pleased to Announce its Support for
the Boys & Girls Club Bike Exchange
Want to learn bike repair? Want to sell bikes? Do you have an old bicycle that you want to put to good use? Want a good used bike?
The Boys & Girls Club Bike Exchange in Ewing can help with all these needs. Volunteers at the Bike Exchange condition old bikes and sell them from the Exchange’s shop in Trenton. All proceeds from sale of the bikes goes to support programs of the Boys & Girls Club of Trenton and Mercer County.
The Boys & Girls Club Bike Exchange opened on May 1, 2009 in Ewing, NJ. The Exchange accepts used bikes from individuals, police departments and universities in the area. These bikes are conditioned by volunteers, and sold from the Bike Exchange’s shop:
Capitol Plaza Shopping Center
1500 North Olden Avenue
Bikes can be purchased or donated by going to the Bike Exchange, open during the spring, summer and fall, Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Thursday from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m.
Bikes being donated also can be taken to several Exchange bike drop points in Mercer County. Fast Signs on US 1, southbound lane, Lawrenceville (Monday to Friday ) is a major bike drop location. In addition, almost all bike shops in the area have agreed to accept bikes for the Exchange. The bike shops accepting bikes are on the Exchange’s Web site: www.BikeExchangeNJ.org. All locations will provide a receipt for tax purposes.
The missions of the Exchange are
- to make low cost bikes available to residents in our area, and
- to make a significant financial contribution to the after school and summer programs of the Boys & Girls Club in Trenton.
Since all workers on this project are volunteers, and since use of retail space is being donated by Levin Property Management, most all of the money received goes to the Boys & Girls Club.
More information about the Bike Exchange is available on its Web site at www.BikeExchangeNJ.org.
