A message from Earth Day ATX:
"For the whole month of March, Earth Day Austin is teaming up with Bicycle Sport Shop and Austin Yellow Bike Project to collect, repair, and redistribute bikes to local youth during the Earth Day ATX event happening Saturday, April 22, at Huston-Tillotson University from noon until 7 PM. And we need your help making these kids' dreams come true!
Now through March 31st, drop off your outgrown, underutilized, and/or gently used bicycle(s) of any size at any one of five Bicycle Sport Shop locations, or to the Austin Yellow Bike Project center in East Austin. Yellow Bike Project mechanics will then inspect and fix-up into working order as many bikes as they can by April 22. A public release of bikes will be given out to young people attending Earth Day and they get to go home with a new-to-them bike.
Drop off that bike taking up space in your garage/patio/storage room today so that Yellow Bike Project can restore it and give it a new life. Let's get these kids moving and give them the independence, freedom, and pure joy a bicycle can bring. By donating your bike, you pass on everything that you love about cycling directly to someone in need!"
