Bike Drive -Saturday, October 22, 2011----Essex Civic Centre, 360 Fairview Ave.
An initial Bikesmart bike drive event was held at the Essex Civic Center in October 2011. Our goal was to educate the public and collect bikes or equiptment to help support our program. The event received a lot of media and public support, and we spoke with many local citizens who were very pleased with the ideas and goals of this program and how it will benefit the community.
In the future we plan to have many more educational and interactive events to continue to spread the word about our program, but also to bring bikes directly to the people who need them most!
