Abandoned Bikes Get a Second Life

Bikes that are abandoned on campus at Curtin University are held for months (this time it was over a year) and if they are not collected they are donated. Bikes for Humanity collect the bikes and take them to their warehouse where they will be given a new lease on life by volunteers. These bikes are then sent to remote communities, Africa, and some are sold at open days a few times a year to raise funds. It would be awesome to have a tag on a bike and know where it ends up.

We love it when abandoned bikes are given a new lease of life and live to ride another day. Great to hear that that you do too. And yes it would be fascinating to find out more about where they end up.
