Neglected Bike Drive
May 1, 2017 @ 8:00 am - May 31, 2017 @ 5:00 pmFree
For the 4th year Hot Purple Energy is celebrating National Bike Month by hosting the Neglected Bike Drive. Offering a place for all of those poor neglected or abandoned bicycles to be dropped off to be fixed up and distributed to the less fortunate in the Coachella Valley.
So if you have a bike that you no longer use, here are your options. One, fix it up and use it! Bikes are fun and healthy. Two, drop it off in its current sad state to Hot Purple Energy during business hours and we will take it from there. Three, fix up your bike, but go to the store and buy a kids bike and drop it off at Hot Purple Energy.
Depending on the condition and number of bikes donated we will do a needs analyses on how much help we need in fixing the bikes and who in the valley gets them. Past years have seen hundreds of bikes redistributed from for kids from Thermal to the Boys and Girls Clubs of Palm Springs and the Coachella Valley.
A HUGE THANK YOU in advance to Mike of the BIKE TRUCK for his donation of over $500 in tires and parts and his time to help fix them up.
LETS MAKE 2017 the best year yet!
