Backcountry Bikes and Skis Variety of Bikes Donated Spenard Builders Supply
2018 Bike Drive is October 22 thru November 17, Hosted by Classic Country 100.9, Backcountry Bike and Ski, Spenard Builders Supply - Palmer & Wasilla and Palmer Rotary.
Children request bikes but this is an item out of our gift price range. Hosting an Annual Bike Drive seemed like the perfect way to collect bikes in hopes of collecting new, or like new bikes from the community to be given as presents to children in need this coming Christmas. Although we are strict about giving new items to our children, bicycles are one of the few things that we will consider giving used as long as it is in excellent condition and “Gift Worthy”. (We can no longer accept bikes that need of repairs.)

Last year's Bike Drive was FABULOUS! We were able to collect 65 bikes. We can not thank the businesses and all the people who donated bikes enough. THANK YOU!
We will continue to collect bikes, so please just let us know if you want to donate one and we will meet with you.
Parents appreciation when receiving a bike for their child was so very moving. Many parents cried and gave the elves extra hugs. For their older children a bike would be their mode of transportation to school, activities and work. We are pleased that we could be doing something this special for a child or young adult.
