There is a huge need for bicycles for migrant farm workers. A bike repair shop has been set up and staffed with skilled bike mechanics who can do anything from tune-ups to major repairs, and if it can’t be repaired, the donated bikes will be used for parts. The inventory is very low and with the season starting, bikes are in high demand.
