Support a Great Cause!
We’re doing all this to give back to our cycling community. We come together in the spirit of enabling cycling for EVERYONE, and to support the practicality of bicycles as an economical and environmentally friendly mode of transportation.
We are donating proceeds from our 2017 WNY Bike Fest to R Community Bikes. You can help in any of the following ways:
- DONATE a bike – no matter what shape it’s in – someone else who really needs it would benefit greatly from it!
- DONATE bike parts, tools or gear you don’t need or want – RCB can use it to help fix up their donated bikes and provide those in need with the special accessories that could prove useful to them
- BUY RAFFLE TICKETS – cash only – all proceeds will go to support RCB’s mission
We’ll be acting as a special collection point for them at Dryer Road Park during the festival. If you’ve got any unwanted adult or kid’s bikes or bike parts collecting dust in your garage or basement, please bring them to the Western NY Bike Fest. It’s a donation you’ll feel really good about!
Just drive into Dryer Road Park’s parking lot circle where R Community Bikes will help you unload your donations. Besides the good feeling that comes with helping people in need, you’ll also receive a receipt for your taxes.
What does R Community Bikes do?
R Community Bikes will make your donated bikes ride-able and safe, and then distribute them to Rochester area’s most needy children and adults at no charge.
Many recipients of RCB’s rehabilitated bikes depend on them as their main source of transportation. R Community Bikes is a non-profit organization that gave away nearly 2,600 bicycles last year at no charge.
Join the many who have supported this wonderful cause!
