Massey Bike Drop Repairs

16 Apr 2017, Posted by Dayle Laing in Brampton Cycling, Brampton Kids on Bikes, Region of Peel Cycling

Bike donations doubled this year at Massey Bike Drop Repairs!

Massey Street Public School families rallied to Massey Bike Drop Repairs night April 13th. BikeBrampton volunteers made minor repairs for Massey School Bike Swap Apr 25th.

Massey has a goal to provide free bikes to as many kids as possible. Bikes are saved from backyards, garages and landfill.

Proud kids outgrew their bikes and hope to trade in for a larger size when they return on Apr 25th 6-8pm. Bike Swap 2017 Flyer

This boy learned to ride on bike he received at Massey Bike Swap last year! He wanted a photo to keep memories of an important ‘first’ in his life.

Mobile Pro Bicycle Repairs technician Peter Bolton volunteered with fellow BikeBrampton members. They are making minor repairs on donated bikes for Massey Bike Swap. Peter’s moto is “On yer bike… working to get more people on bikes more often”. Peter will come to local residents! If you need a bike repair, you can contact him at 416-419-1420 or cpoole4503@rogers.com

Repaired bikes are ‘test-driven’ to ensure reasonable working condition…

Thanks to administrators at Massey Street Public School and Ranger Lorie for all the efforts to ensure kids can get bikes and be able to bike to school! BikeBrampton is so pleased to be able to support this cause. Of course, Massey St PS is registered for Peel Bike to School Week!

An outdoor classroom will be held in Massey Park, behind the school. Toronto and Region Conservation will be on hand to discuss their stewardship programs at Heart Lake.
