THIS WEEKEND: Reading Municipal Light Department To Host Bicycle Recycling Event On May 5-6

Below is an announcement from Reading Municipal Light Department:

READING, MA — ReadingCares and the Reading Climate Action Committee are thrilled to announce the highly anticipated return of the annual Bike Recycling and Give-Away.  The public is invited to donate their used bikes (in good condition) at RMLD, 230 Ash Street, on Friday, May 5, 2023, from 11am to 12:30pm, and on Saturday, May 6, 2023, from 9am to 11am. All donors will receive a voucher to return on Saturday to choose a free bike.

The donated bikes will be cleaned and inspected, the tires will be pumped and minor repairs will be made.  These refurbished bikes will then be offered for adoption at no charge to donors at noon and to the general public at 12:30pm.  This is a great opportunity to get rid of bikes that are no longer being used and to give them a second life. If you just have a bike to get rid of, if you want a new bike for yourself, or both, we encourage you to participate in this community event. Bikes for riders of all ages are needed.

The event is co-sponsored by ReadingCares and the Reading Climate Advisory Committee with support from RMLD and the Town of Reading. The Reading Police Department will be on hand to promote bike safety.

Contact with questions.
