Three locations in separate counties collecting adult bicycles to help people in Uganda

CLIFTON PARK, N.Y. – There is a three county bike collection
on Saturday.

Bicycles for Humanity (B4H) will be collecting used adult
bicycles at Siena College in Loudonville, Elevate Cycles in Clifton Park, and
Inside Edge in Glens Falls.

The organization will ship these bicycles to Uganda so
citizens can train to be bike mechanics which opens business opportunities to
the communities.  The bikes also help
children travel to schools that are too far away from their home to walk.

B4H recently sent their first shipment of 421 bikes to the
African country.

The organization says that the United States discards about
10 million bicycles every year and only 50,000 bikes are distributed to
developing countries. 

At Siena College and Inside Edge, the collection is from 9:30am – 12:30pm. At Elevate Cycles the event is 10am-1pm.
