ReCycle Bikes volunteer bike mechanics

Discovery Routes is proud of its work supporting the equitable access to trails in our community. We do not receive any government funding to support our ongoing delivery of the ReCycle Bikes Program. We rely on contributions from businesses, individuals and volunteers who share our values and want to help get bikes to people of all ages who are in need in our community.


Bells & Whistles Sponsor  $250

Every bicycle is equipped with a bell, reflectors and basic safety gear before it rolls out our door. We go through these basics quickly every year.
