Have a bike to donate? Mercer Bike Drive coming soon

If you have a bicycle you no longer use or that a child has outgrown, here’s a way to put it to good use. Mercer County and the Park Commission will be hosting their third annual Bike Drive in early April. The Bike Drive supports the Boys & Girls Clubs of Mercer County Bike Exchange, a volunteer-run organization that repairs donated bikes and sells them at modest prices at its Ewing location at Capitol Plaza, with proceeds benefiting the Boys & Girls Clubs.

To donate a bike, drop it off on Saturday, April 8, between 12noon and 4pm at one of two locations: Ranger Headquarters at Mercer County Park in West Windsor, or the Historic Hunt House at 197 Blackwell Road in Hopewell Township. The rain date is April 15. The first two Bike Drives were a big success, and we’re happy to help promote bike-riding for both transportation and pleasure while helping in the efforts to make low-cost bicycles available to low- and moderate-income families.
