Bikes for the World


Do you have an unused bike sitting in your garage, basement or shed??

It may not be worth much to you but it can make a huge difference in the lives of the working poor in developing countries. Instead of letting it sit there and collect more dust, please consider bringing that bike to McCurdy Field in Frederick on April 9th between 9AM until 1PM. The event will be held rain or shine.

For the sixth consecutive year, the Carroll Creek Rotary Club is sponsoring a bike collection on behalf of Bikes for the World. Bikes for the World is an Arlington, VA based non-profit organization that will take these bikes and ship them overseas to developing countries where they can make a huge difference in the lives of the working poor. In addition to the bikes sent overseas, we will also be collecting 20 bikes to give to the Boys & Girls Club right here in Frederick.

A donation of $10 per bike is requested in order to help defray shipping costs. This cash donation along with the value of the bikes donated is tax-deductible and receipts will be issued.
