The nonprofit organization has a core group of seven members, and refurbishes used and donated bikes to give to children and their family who could use them this summer. There will be an open house from 6 to 8 p.m. Monday at the group’s warehouse at 3902 Wishing Spring Drive. It’s an opportunity for people to get a sense of the organization, what it’s trying to do and how they can get involved, said Elaine McCool, board member.
The organization formed last fall and gave away 106 bikes through January, McCool said. Most were given before Christmas. “The long-term goal is to be working with organizations who know the kids and families in need,” she said.
