BIG BIKE GIVEAWAY 2017

free bikes to the community Sunday October 1, 2017

12pm at Boyle Community Centre (530 Charlotte Street, London)

Since 2014, Big Bike Giveaway has given out over 500 bikes to the community, for free!

Big Bike Giveaway is organized by a husband and wife team in London Ontario who are local community ambassadors. They collect and repair bicycles and give them away for free on one day each year. The goal of the program is to get as many people on bikes as possible and to encourage healthier lifestyles in the community.The program is intended to specifically helps those needing this resource to get ahead due to poverty.

WHO CAN HAVE A FREE BIKE?

Londoners come to the event and get sized up for a free bike that fits them. The concept is simple, first-come-first-serve and there is only one bike issued to each person. The person must be in attendance to receive a bike as they are fitted to the bike before they leave. Big Bike Giveaway takes it to the next level by reserving the first lot of bikes for people currently working with charitable organizations and have been deemed in-major-need of community support.

DONATIONS WELCOME

Big Bike Giveaway first repairs used bikes and this can be expensive. Donations from the community are appreciated. All funds received go to purchasing parts to repair the bikes (tires, chains, tubes, brakes etc.)
