Wanted: used bikes

Post by Anika » Wed Dec 06, 2017 5:59 am

Hey gang!

As many of you are aware, I am now working for Island Health, Mental Health and Substance Use. One of the services that I work with is the Seven Oaks Tertiary Care Hospital out on Blenkinsop where individuals with severe mental illness live long term. Some will eventually return to living in the community but for some this is home for good. I have been working on improving the resident quality of life through sport and have had some fantastic community support, especially from Trek Pro City who have given us free access to their rental bikes, but I want to build on this. So the idea is to get a small fleet of commuter style bikes for Seven Oaks that residents could use for recreation, fitness and transportation. If anyone has an old beater lying around I would absolutely love to re-home it for you.

Cheers

Anika

Welcome home, Anika! I don’t have a bike for you, but I will say I think this initiative is pretty damn cool. As is the neologism “re-home”. 8)

Anika...great program.
Considering almost every home in Victoria area has at least 1 or 2 bicycles that aren't being used .....there are alot of potential donation bikes that need to be re-homed.

And I have at least one old mountain bike for you.
PM or f.b. me and we will arrange a drop off.
