Do you have a bike that you no longer use? Maybe you have one that your child has outgrown?
Mercer County and the Park Commission are hosting a Bike Drive at several locations throughout the county. We will take your old bikes – no matter the condition – and give them to the Trenton Bike Exchange, a volunteer organization that collects, repairs, and sells used bikes at a very low price.
Date: Saturday, April 10, 2021 (Rain date, Saturday, April 17)
Time: Noon – 4 pm
Locations: The Historic Hunt House, Ranger Headquarters at Mercer County Park, Tulpehaking Nature Center
The mission of the Bike Exchange is to help low-income families get decent bikes and to raise money for our local Boys and Girls Club. Besides having the satisfaction of knowing your old bike will be refurbished and put to good use, your donation is tax-deductible.
Since 2009, the Bike Exchange has sold over 17,000 bikes and raised more than $1,000,000 for Boys and Girls Club after-school programs, which serve more than 1,200 youths daily.
The Boys and Girls Club enables young people to develop their full potential as productive, caring and responsible citizens. The Club provides safe havens, academic enrichment, and recreational activities through after-school, weekend, and summer programs.
