A recent Royal Auto magazine had an article on recycling suitable, neglected bikes which could be of interest to members. Five places accepting donations of bikes are:
- Second Chance Cycles, in Collingwood
- Bicycles for Humanity
- WeCycle, Batman Park
- Bikes 4 Life
Some of these organisations supply up to 100 bikes a year free to those in need. The Hobsons Bay Mens Shed also collect bicycles which they bulk send to the Werribee Mens Shed for repair and redistribution.
If you have any unloved bikes sitting around, perhaps think of giving them a second life. Do your shed a favour as well as someone in need.
