Ecole Laity View Elementary School (21023 123 Avenue Maple Ridge), is hosting their 1st bicycle Re-cycle and Exchange Event.  All families are encouraged to donate to the school any bikes that they have out-grown and have the opportunity to get another bike for the upcoming summer that will fit better.  Those donating a working bike will receive a $10.00 voucher (per bike) that can be exchanged towards a different bike.  All donated bikes will be sold on Saturday June 4th from 10:00 am – 12:00 pm at the cost of $20.00 (maximum one voucher per bike).

This is a great way to make some space in the garage or shed and know that you have helped your friends and community by reducing the need to purchase a new bike when your family has one that is no longer needed.  Also, encouraging the reuse of our bicycles, helps ensure that kids have easy access to healthy activities.  Bicycles that do not find a home during our event will be donated to other organizations or recycled.

The primary purpose for our event is not fundraising.  We do sell the bikes that have been donated to the school, but the purpose is to cover the cost of putting on the event.  We need to cover the cost of all or our road signs, advertisements, posters and the cost of having a custodian available for the event.  Our goal is not to raise funds but to be able to make this type of event self-sustaining.  All of the parents, kids and teachers involved are volunteers and we are developing an event that can hopefully be copied by others.  All remaining bikes will be donated to the less fortunate in the community.  Our goal for 2016 is 600 bikes for the exchange.

If you are able to donate your time to assist in the exchange event, please contact Kelly.  We are currently looking for 5 individuals that can help with this process and at least 1 individual that has bike knowledge to check over the used bikes.

If you are unable to attend, but would like to donate, please contact for possible pick-ups.

Much thanks to all the students, teachers, individuals, families and community members that have participated in this event.
