SARATOGA SPRINGS—Bikeatoga will be holding its annual Holiday Kids Bike Giveaway on Saturday, Dec. 9. Over the past several months Bikeatoga has collected and refurbished used kids bikes specifically for this event.
Parents or guardians of children who are in need of a free bicycle must call the Bikeatoga phone line at (518)290-0065 and leave a voicemail. Calls will be returned with an appointment for Saturday, Dec. 9, and directions to the Bikeatoga workshop. The Holiday Kids Bike Giveaway is by appointment only, and a parent or guardian must be present.
Helmets will be provided by Cornell Cooperative Extension and Bikeatoga.
Bikeatoga is prepared to give away approximately 60 bikes to needy children through age 17. Organizers said in a press release “tThe best selection of bikes is for younger children, and selection of some bike sizes is limited. The size requested is not guaranteed”.
Volunteer members of Bikeatoga are dedicated to making functional cycling more convenient, accessible, and safer in and around Saratoga Springs. The group works to emphasize the environmental, economic, and health-related benefits of everyday cycling.
