SARATOGA SPRINGS — The Bikeatoga bicycle workshop will hold its spring children’s bike giveaway for children from Saratoga County on Saturday (May 4) in Saratoga Springs.

Children must be accompanied by a parent or responsible guardian. Throughout the year volunteers refurbish bikes donated by area residents for distribution to individuals or families who lack the means to purchase bikes on their own.

In the last five years, hundreds of bicycles have been collected, repaired and distributed to area children and members of the local community. Cornell Cooperative Extension will be providing helmets and helmet fittings for any child receiving a bicycle.

For an appointment to adopt a bike or for more information, call 265-8507. Leave your name and your phone number and your call will be returned with an appointment time and the workshop location. The workshop welcomes the donation of bicycles or bike tools.

More information about Bikeatoga and its bicycle/pedestrian advocacy efforts can be found at www.bikeatoga.org.
