Pedals For Progress
In partnership with Pedals For Progress, the Rotary Club of The Palisades holds bike drives to collect used, unwanted bicycles that will be shipped to low-income communities in countries where the bicycles are put to good use.
The club collects the bicycles, and donors are given a tax write off for the value of the bicycle. We ask for a $10 donation to cover shipping costs.
Once oversees, the bicycles provide transport and develop economies by promoting self-sustaining bicycle repair businesses. In addition to bicycles, we also collect sewing machines.
Help organize a bike drive or a sewing machine drive in your town. Please contact us here.
Join us on our next Pedals for Progress bike drive and help take in used bikes, dismantle and prepare them for shipment. Please contact us here.
