Fabulous events this week in Vancouver, British Columbia
The Obsession Bikes team is putting their wicked mechanic skills to good use this Christmas.
As kids grow older they naturally grow out of their bikes, yet many families hold on to them for years despite them never getting any use. If you can relate and have some collecting dust in your garage, drop them off so they can be put to good use! They are accepting bike donations right up until Christmas that they will tune up and send to needy kids in the local community.
They have already received some very generous donations from Cycles Lambert and Shimano Canada who donated parts, Outdoor Gear Canada who donated $900 worth of helmets and Cycle Component Network who donated a ton of bikes. EMDOUBLEYU provided pro bono graphic and ads design while North Shore Outlook is providing free advertisement for the cause. And of course you can’t forget about the generosity from Obsession Bikes who is donating between $3000-$5000 in labour and parts!
