Friday we delivered eleven Community Bikes to Spurwink Services. Community Bikes are bicycles rebuilt by Nasson Bike Center youth and volunteers for use by deserving folks in Sanford and surrounding towns.
Bikes arrive at the Nasson Bike Center through donations and from the Sanford Police Station. Down the steps they go to our basement facilities.
We store the bikes until they are selected to be rebuilt. They can be overhauled to be ridden by one of our youth, or set aside to be rebuilt as a Community Bike. By rebuilding a community bike, our youth can then select a bike for themselves, rebuild it and take it home at no charge.
Most of our finished Community Bikes are delivered to Spurwink Services at their Biddeford Offices. Once or twice a year I fill my pickup with the Community Bikes. Most are children’s bikes.
Emily Hanley Community Services Supervisor at Spurwink gets my call when we have bikes ready. After she gets a list from me, she contacts her staff throughout York County letting her know the bikes are available.
Spurwink sends our bikes off throughout York County, to be ridden and enjoyed again by deserving kids! Thanks for our donors, the Sanford Police, the volunteers and youth of the Nasson Bike Center, and Spurwink Services for getting these bikes back on the road-and sidewalks, driveways, wherever kids ride.
