George Street Cycle Squad/Savage’s Bike Shop bike/Fund-raiser
Odell Park on a Lark
August 19th, 8am – 2pm
This year Kelly Murray and I are going to ride 100k (and 2100m of climbing!) around Odell Park to benefit the George Street Cycle Squad. What can you do to help?
- If you have a bike in relatively good working order, please take it Savages Bicycle Shop on King Street and drop it off! They have generously agreed to give them a quick tune up and hand them on!
- If you’d like to donate money, please wait until Monday, August 22 and go to the George Street Middle School link to donate (I’ll remind you!)
- Show up on THIS Friday, August 19th, 8am – 2pm at Odell Park to cheer us on, do a lap or two, or drop off sweets! We love cookies!
A few years ago, at the urging of a few committed students, I helped start the George Street Cycle Squad. Since then it has grown into a series of group rides, education around bicycle safety and maintenance, and of course getting kids onto bikes! As such, my pals and I do a heinous fundraising ride each year to increase awareness and receive donations of bikes and funds to keep kids moving!
