Working Bikes picked up 40 abandoned bikes from Evanston Police Department property manager Susan Morgan on November 22. This is the third pickup from Evanston PD over the last 12 months.
We are thrilled to get these bikes to carry out our mission of providing bikes to people as tools of empowerment locally and internationally. Some of the mountain bikes will be included in a 500 bike shipping container to Bikes for Lesotho.
Working Bikes is happy to provide this service to empty the bike storage room at Evanston and other police departments across the Chicago metro area.
