A Bike Drive became a high need when we reviewed the wish lists of children. Last year more children then ever before requested bikes. Many wanted them for fun, exercise and to do things with their friends. But we also had requests from teens who wanted a bike for transportation.
Although we are strict about giving new items to the children, bicycles are one of the few used items as long as they are gift worthy.
