Hot Purple is back with their annual bike drive this May! As we have done in years past, we will be hosting an annual bike drive through the month of May in celebration of National Bike Month!
So if you have a bike that you no longer use or no longer want, drop it by our office! Depending on the condition and number of bikes donated we will do a need analyses on how much repairs we will need on the lot of bikes donated and from there we will determine who to give them to. Past years have seen hundreds of bikes redistributed for kids at the Boys and Girls Clubs of Palm Springs to kids in Thermal, the Coachella Valley Rescue Mission, and more. Last year limited our donation options but did not stop us from being able to help the community. We were able to fix up about a dozen bikes with the help of Big Wheel Tours to then sell them in our 1st Annual Benefit Yard Sale benefiting Well in the Desert, a local non-profit organization that provides services such as food, clothing, and shelter to those in need.
This year, Vic Yepello at Jade Bicycle Detailing & Repair has generously offered to help us and Big Wheel Tours repair the bikes that need a little more love than a pump of air. If you need bike repairs yourself, please feel free to reach out to Vic @ (760) 660-0010 or to Big Wheel Tours which offers both repairs & bike rentals!
If you have a bike that you do use, whether it may be regularly or sporadically but would still like to participate in our drive, then you can upgrade or buy a new kids bike and donate it! We accept bikes in all conditions!
If you have questions, reach out to us at (760)322-4433 ext.120.
