Can you remember that special moment when you rode a bike for the first time as a kid? Spoke Folk’s in New York want every child to have that same experience. Unfortunately, for all too many children, this just won’t happen. The Spoke Folk “Bikes for Kids” project is offering an opportunity for children, regardless of family circumstances, to have that same experience.
“When hope hardly seems worth having, just mount a bicycle and go out for a spin down the road, without thought on anything but the ride you are taking.” ―Arthur Conan Doyle
Dunkirk, New York’s nonprofit community bicycle project Spoke Folk is refurbishing more than 50 bikes that will be distributed to children in need, just in time for Christmas.
Program volunteers who have been trained in bike maintenance refurbish donated or discarded bikes that are then distributed to adults and children in need. To date, the program has returned over 900 bikes to the Dunkirk, New York community.
Volunteers are always needed. For more information about how to become involved with Spoke Folk, please email them at firstname.lastname@example.org or call at 716-673-5834.
