Bicycles used for the exchange are donated by members of the community. Volunteers conduct a safety inspection, make minor repairs, and equip them with a new bell and reflective tape. Bikes are then distributed on scheduled bike exchange dates to children in need.

Next Kids Bike Exchange!

Where: Downtown Market, Elgin Street, Sudbury

When:  June 9, 2018
Time: 9 am to 12 noon

 

Children can trade in their outgrown bike for a gently used one of the correct size. Children will also receive a helmet if they do not currently own one that fits.

Families who do not have bicycles to trade in may receive a bike by making a token donation to help support the project.

Bicycles and helmets are provided on a first come first serve basis, and sizes and quantities may vary.

I have a children’s bike to donate, how do I get it to you?

During the bike exchanges:

Bring your bike to the exchanges. We will accept gently used bikes, take them to our repair depot, and repair them for the next exchange.

2018 bike dropoffs or pickups: 

Bikes can be dropped off at:
TSYS Managed Services Canada Inc
1933 Regent St, Sudbury (right beside GoodLife Fitness in the Southridge Mall)
