This will be our fourth year at the Green Day in the Bay event. All bikes pulled from basements and garages can be donated, but what we need most are mountain bikes with 24″ and 26″ wheels. After your donate your bike, our staff and student mechanics refurbish them at our Valid Bike Shop in North Division High School. Then the tuned up bikes are either sold back to the public to help fund our education programing or they used in our Safe Routes to School Programs.
Help us fill our truck with quality used bicycles to use in our education programs!
