  Ecole St. Cecilia School (610 Agate Crescent S.E.Calgary AB(just west on Southland Dr. past Blackfoot)) is hosting our 5th annual bicycle recycle and exchange event.  All families are encouraged to donate to the school any bikes or parts that they have out-grown and have the opportunity to get another bike for the upcoming summer that will fit better. Those donating a working bike will receive a $10 voucher (per bike) that can be exchanged towards a different bike.  All donated bikes will be sold on Saturday April 26 10:00am-1:00pm at the cost of $20 (max. one voucher per bike). This year we are also opening up our collections to include used bike parts.  These parts as well as any working bikes that don’t find a new home at our event will be passed along to other organization that is in need of them. This is a great way to make some space in the garage or shed and know that you have helped your friends and community by reducing the need to purchase a new bike when your family has one that is no longer needed.  Also, encouraging the reuse of our bicycles, helps ensure that kids have easy access to healthy activities.  Bicycles and parts that do not find a home during our event will be donated to other organizations or recycled.  We are accepting all bikes from tricycles to adults.  Bike drop offs will be accepted Thursday April 24 and Friday April 25 from 3:30 to 6:30 pm each day.  Last year we had 342 bikes find new homes, this time we hope for 375.   Please see our web page at

This year thanks to the growing popularity and demand we are also going to have groups that we support through our donations of the bikes as well as those that support us in our cause to exchange bikes, set up at the event to help with their exposure.  If your association or group is interested in taking part please contact Harry at bikeXchange[at]
