2024 ReCycle Bikes Program is Rolling

Discovery Routes has collected, tuned up and given back over 950 used bicycles to North Bay and area residents since the popular ReCycle Bikes Program was first introduced in 2015. A priority for Discovery Routes is to get more people to experience the local trails for health and well-being. For some, a properly fitted bicycle in good working order can be a barrier to having the freedom to ride.

This year, the program needs more than bicycles to keep it rolling at the level the community has come to expect. Many of the generously donated bicycles are in disrepair and require a lot of volunteer time and new parts to be made safe. Cash donations and sponsorship are needed to help cover some program costs. Discovery Routes has a very dedicated and skilled group of volunteers that keep returning year after year but the program also needs new volunteers that are willing to shoulder some of the administrative needs of the program. Interested individuals can find out more and make a donation at ReCycle Bikes.

Anyone with a bike to donate can drop it off Wednesday afternoons starting May 15 to June 26 from 3pm to 6pm at the Laurentian Ski Hill Lower Lodge at 701-991 Ski Club Road in North Bay. Charitable receipts are issued for all cash donations and, in the amount of $25 for each bicycle in good repair that is donated.

The vast network of trails we celebrate exist on the traditional lands and waterways of the Anishinaabe people within the territory protected by the Robinson Huron Treaty of 1850 and Williams Treaties of 1923.
