Bike Drive and a New Drop-off Location


ONE HOT PINK ONE!


OUR VERY FIRST BIKE AT THE BIKE DRIVE

BIKE DRIVE

The bike drive on Bainbridge Island, the first ever for the Olympic Peninsula Division, was a success. A flood of bikes in the last hour, that doubled the total number from the first four hours, made for surprising, hectic, and appreciative end to the drive. Thank all of you generous Bainbridge Islanders for you contributions of bikes, bike parts, helmets, lights and other gear. A special thanks goes out to Bethany Lutheran Church for their generous donation of the use of their grounds so we could have the bike drive. Also to the Bainbridge Islander newspaper who provided our community ad in the paper for four weeks--almost all of the people that donated said they heard about the bike drive because of the ad. 

BforH has now collected 117 bikes! While our official kick-off was in March, the collections did not actually start until mid-May. So, we’ve essentially collected 117 bikes in about 5 weeks! That’s fabulous. 


NEW DROP-OFF LOCATION

We have a new drop-off location in Kingston! A heartfelt thank you goes out to Beth Kommer of North Kitsap Metal Recycling. Located at 7810 NE Ecology Rd., which is just north of the casino, Beth has been instrumental in the OP’s success so far--she’s provided us with 74 of our bikes so far! Wow!
