Reduce, Reuse, Re-bicycle
Bicycle Re-Source of Bend
Central Oregon loves its bikes. One local organization loves bicycles enough to make sure that folks in need have a good shot at acquiring one. Bicycle Re-Source of Bend is a non-profit organization that takes in bicycles, parts and monetary donations from the community and refurbishes bikes at a small shop in Bend. Once rebuilt (with any parts that may be needed) and checked for safety, bikes are provided by request to approximately 50 Central Oregon community organizations including churches, schools, charities and government agencies.
Most remaining broken bicycle parts or frames are either donated or sent to area metal recycling centers in an effort to keep these items out of community landfills. The five-year-old nonprofit also offers bicycle repair classes to help educate the public, and provides free safety checks at many community events throughout the year.
