Child cycling

Make a difference in a child’s life this holiday season by donating a bicycle.

Let’s face it. Regardless of how old we are, we’d all like to find a new bicycle under the Christmas tree. Or at least next to it.

We all remember the Christmas when we received our first bike. Now many of us have had the chance to watch our children or grandchildren enjoy the same thrill.

Not much has changed for children when it comes to new bikes.

Eventually, though, new bikes become old bikes, and old bikes end up in the back of the garage, gathering dust, or on the curb with a “FREE” sign.

Remember other families in need this holiday season when you plan to dispose of your old bike.

The Southern Tier Bicycle League, a group of riders who promote riding year-round, is looking for bikes that your children have outgrown or stopped using. The donated bikes will be refurbished and given to children who will really love them!

For riders from Elmira and Corning, Waverly and Sayre, and Wellsboro and Mansfield, now is the time to become a member of the Southern Tier Bicycle League.

You can become a member for $10 in annual dues, or qualify by volunteering four hours of your time at STBL events.

Your membership will introduce you to bicycling events in the area and benefit various charities.

And it will help make old bikes new again and put them in the hands of people of all ages who will love them.

In the spirit of the holiday season, isn’t that enough reason to join right now?

Thanks for reading!

Thanks, Jim.
