2021 Coatesville Bicycle Give-A-Way
The Coatesville Downtown Revitalization
has partnered with the Coatesville Police
Department to bring the community a
Bicycle Give-A-Way for the holidays.
We have obtained 18 bicycles for all age
groups ranging from bicycles with training
wheels up to adult bicycles.
*** Each bicycle will come with a helmet ***
How did we obtain the bicycles and who they are meant for?
Working with Bicycle Garage Indy (BCI), we obtained the bicycles through their "Shifting Gears" Program. These are not new bicycles, but are used refurbished bicycles. The "Shifting Gears" program started at the Pendleton Correctional Facility in Feb. 2006. In 2011, the program moved to Putnamville Correctional Facility. The purpose of the program is to obtain used bicycles through donations for repair, renovation and distribution to underprivileged children and families in need. The program also serves to provide meaningful work opportunities for offenders and to prepare them for a successful re-entry into the community.
As a result of this program, these bicycles were donated to the CDR. The purpose is for us to provide a bicycle to local area residents that may not have a bicycle and cannot afford one on their own.
How do I request a bicycle?
We will be raffling off these bicycles on Friday, December 10th. You must enter by December 9th for a chance to receive a bicycle. The raffle will be anonymous and the drawing will be held by representatives of the CDR and the Police Department on December 10th. Winners of a bicycle will be notified on Friday via a phone call and/or email. Bicycles will be available for pick-up at the Police Station which is located across the street from the Coatesville Fire Department on Main Street. Bicycles must be picked up on Saturday, December 11th between the hours of 10:00am and 1:00pm.
