Bike shop seeks more donated bikes for charity drive

The Bicycle Pedaler is seeking more donations of unwanted or slightly damaged children's bikes for charity.

The bike shop, at 330 N. Rock Road, has been collecting and repairing the donated bikes for more than 20 years. Most wind up in the Toys for Tots program.

In a typical year, the shop will be given more than 400 bikes and fix up 250 to 300. But this year, said owner Ruth Holliday, they have received only about 120 bikes.

The deadline is Dec. 15 and the bikes can be dropped off at the shop.
