We promote healthier lifestyles for underprivileged children through the gifts of bicycles and helmets. We provide children the opportunity to experience all the benefits of cycling including exercise, transportation, and enjoyment of the outdoors!
28 distributions and over 1,400 bicycles to date!
WE NEED YOU!!! Our work is all Voluntary, WCC Supports our efforts by funding Helmets, Needed Bike Parts and Tools and providing refreshments to workers. Please consider volunteering one night per month to help us get these bikes refurbished and out to kids who need them. The work is rewarding, both in the comeraderie of the volunteers, and the joy on the children's faces as they get a new bike! Just Sign Up on the rides board for one of our worknights and come to the work location around 6pm. If you know nothing about repairing bikes, you will learn on the job, the knowledge could save you a long walk or taxi ride one day. Bike NightsJoin us Tuesday evenings to repair gently used bicycles.We meet every week from 6 to 9PM at Adriane DeFeo’s home at 169 Theodore Fremd Avenue, Rye, NY. All are welcome to participate weekly or once a month.
