Recycle Bicycle Harrisburg

I had a great opportunity on MLK day to volunteer at Recycle Bicycle, which salvages old bikes for parts and scrap metal and uses the parts and proceeds to repair bikes and donate bikes to kids who need them. Its director made clear to us volunteers that so many city kids ride around without brakes, and that by offering free repairs or used bikes in good condition we can save lives.  The bikes here also go to individuals who have no other means to get to work, so the bikes are an ecologically sound solution to sustaining employment.
Lots of Bikes!

I was there, too! This is obviously a case of mistaken identity.
