‘Shifting Gears Bike Donation Drive’ gets rolling

INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) – If you have a bicycle and you’re not riding it anymore now is the perfect time to donate it.

Connie Szabo Schmucker with Bicycle Garage Indy stopped by 24-Hour News 8 at noon to talk about the Shifting Gears Bike Donation Drive.

You can donate your bike on Oct. 1, 8 and 15 from 3 to 7 p.m. at select Fresh Thyme Farmers Markets location.

Each donation can make a positive different in the person who will receive the refurbished bike.

Since the program started in August 2006 nearly 4000 bikes have been donated. In 2015 more than 200 bikes were donated. There are currently 420 requests for bikes.
