hpd-bicycle-recycling-programHPD, Delray Beach Police Department, Richwagen’s Bike Shop, and Patrick Halliday of Delray Beach Bike Club are working with Toussaint L’Ouverture Principal Major Joseph Bernadel to design a bike rebuild and distribution program that will recycle lost and abandoned bikes collected by the Delray Beach Police Department into valuable resources and innovative projects for students.

 

The program will include a friendly “competition” to determine best matches between students and bikes. Interested students will assist with bike repairs and be trained in safety and traffic rules.  Students who demonstrate natural ability and enthusiasm for bike repair and maintenance may be considered for employment at local bike shops.
