2nd Annual Big Bike Drive - Presented by Johnny Velo Bikes

May 21st, 2022

CD 92.9 FM is excited to announce the return of the Big Bike Drive - Presented by Johnny Velo Bikes.

With your help, we can get your leftover bicycles, accessories, and equipment to those in need here in Central Ohio, and beyond! Here's how it works:

On Saturday, May 21st and Sunday, May 22nd, from 10am to 4pm, we'll have a team of volunteers on The Lawn at CAS (2540 Olentangy River Rd) ready to collect your donations to be assessed, repaired, and redistributed from there! Donations will be handle "drive-thru" style for the safety of both you and our volunteers - you don't even have to get out of your car!

The Big Bike Drive would not be possible without the support of Presenting Sponsor Johnny Velo Bikes

We'd also like to thank the following organizations for their expertise, volunteer assistance, and facility use:
Franklinton Cycle Works| Yay Bikes! | CoGo Bike Share | CAS

So how exactly will the process work? All you need to do is simply arrive with your donation and we'll take it from there. With every donation we receive, our on-site experts will determine if the bike can be immediately donated or in need of repair. Unsalvageable donations will be responsibly recycled. From there, donations will be provided to organizations like Franklinton Cycle Works, finding their way to the hands (and legs!) of those in need! Plus, when you make a donation, you will receive a $50 gift certificate towards a new bike from Johnny Velo Bikes AND a year membership to CoGo Bike Share!

The goal of the Big Bike Drive is simple: make bicycling more accessible. With the popularity of biking on the rise, as well as reduced product availability due to supply line interruptions, there is oftentimes not enough supply to make up for the demand! By creating an opportunity to donate equipment that no longer gets any use, we're hoping we can make biking available to many who may not have the chance otherwise!

Please direct any questions about the bike drive to webmaster@cd929fm.com, thank you!
