Nevada, Iowa resident Richard Atwell has been collecting bikes for Working Bikes for about 8 years, amassing 6,500 bikes total in that time. In the past month, Atwell and a team of volunteers that includes Don Hale, Bill Ward, Bob Collins, Jay Barker, and Mike Potter have donated 275 bikes total to Working Bikes, all of which were driven to our warehouse in Chicago for shipping.

 

Atwell and his efforts were recently profiled in an article in the Ames Tribune, which you can read here.
