Bike Fair

Members of Working Bikes Cooperative collect abandoned bikes throughout the city. The bikes are refurbished and donated to worthy causes – and CHI is pleased to be one of their recipients. Each year, we are proud to distribute between 50 and 75 Bikes, helmets and locks to those in need. Transportation is a big issue for the very low income and homeless - and for some, this is a great solution!
