Summertime and fun bike rides go hand-in-hand. But for too many children today, that iconic image is nothing more than a fantasy, because they have no bike to ride. One in four Maritime children are unable to play organized sports, much less own a bike. That’s why we’re so grateful to community partners, Sportwheels and Hot Country 103.5, for donating 100 refurbished bikes to be handed out to children in Halifax.

“Our mission is for Atlantic Canada to have the largest participation rate of kids in sports,” says Jeff Mayhew, Owner of Sportwheels. “This community drive helps by getting 100 kids on bikes this summer. We’re giving forward together.”

We have been so fortunate to be a part of this initiative for the past six years, and look forward to seeing the smiles from children receiving their new bikes.
