donate your old bike to cyclo nord-sud
You can donate your old bike to Cyclo Nord Sud who will renovate it and ship to a third world location where it will begin a new life, and set some lucky person free from the drudgery of having to do everything by walking.
There are many bike-collection events this autumn and spring, one is perhaps near you? the next one in Montreal is at YMCA du Parc on Saturday 8 November.
You can see a complete list of upcoming bike donation events here.
They ask a donation of 12$ to support the donation, renovation/shipping process.
