The Cayuga County Health Department’s Bicycle, Pedestrian and Wheel Sport Safety program, in collaboration with the Cayuga Community Health Network, is hosting the second annual ReBike Cayuga event. We are asking for the community’s help by donating any unused bicycles. Bicycles of all sizes have also been collected from local law enforcement agencies and will be tuned and ready to sell at low cost from 9 to 11 a.m. Saturday, June 9, at Casey Park Arena. Bicycle donation drop-off day will be from noon to 5 p.m. Friday, June 8, at Casey Park Arena. Individuals donating bicycles will be given a tax donation receipt for each bicycle donated.
ReBike Cayuga is an excellent opportunity to do some spring cleaning, organize your garage and recycle old bicycles you may not have used in a while. By donating your old bicycle, you are giving it a new purpose for a new owner. All donated bicycles will be reconditioned, priced to sell and ready to ride off the lot the day of the event. Space will be provided to test drive the bicycles for those interested in purchasing one
A bicycle safety rodeo will be conducted from 9 to 10 a.m. for children ages 5-13 to learn the rules of the road. Free bicycle helmets will be provided to all rodeo participants. You don’t have to buy a bicycle to take part in the bicycle rodeo!
Last year’s ReBike proceeds from the donated bicycles were used to purchase bike helmets and cover the cost of the event.
Casey Park Arena is located at 150 N. Division St. in Auburn behind Falcon Park stadium. We hope to see you there, whether you’re donating, purchasing a bicycle or participating in the bicycle safety rodeo!
