One Incredible Bike Drive!

2011 bike drive
Thanks to all who donated bikes (and assorted bike-related items) to our bike drive to support Bike Exchange and the Boys & Girls Club of Trenton.

We collected 52 bikes, 2 scooters, a trail-a-bike (attach second bike to yours), one bike rack for the back of a car, various parts … our best bike drive in several years!! We also directed several people who wanted to donate bikes to Bike Exchange and their various pick-up points, plus we think we inspired the daughter of a market vendor to run a bike drive at Princeton High School

Not only were we thrilled with the day, but so was Bike Exchange, whose stock of bikes was running very low.

Bike Drive at the Farmers’ Market June 12

Monday, May 10 by JerryFoster

The WWBPA is partnering with the Boys & Girls Club Bike Exchange to collect used bikes at the West Windsor Farmers’ Market Saturday, June 12.  Established in 2009, Bike Exchange New Jersey benefits the Boys and Girls Club of Trenton’s after-school program.

According to a recent article in the Princeton Packet, Russ White said Bike Exchange New Jersey raised over $40,000 for the club in 2009, and has already raised $10,000 so far this year.

Let’s do our part! If you have old bikes that can be refurbished, bring them to the West Windsor Farmers’ Market on June 12, or visit the Boys & Girls Club of Trenton and Mercer County website to find a drop-off location — there are several in the area that will take bikes any time.
