I know many of you are activists in the community, and bike riders
also, so I'd like to share information regarding the upcoming
8th Anniversary Celebration for the ReCYCLEry. WXYC's own Ethan
Clauset has agreed to be one of the djs for the event.
thanks, Kirk Schmidt
The ReCYCLEry is celebrating its first 8th anniversary by hosting a
fun-filled family-oriented gathering on October 26th that will
include food, music, cruiser-style bike rides and more. Located at
the Southern Rail Restaurant near Weaver Street Market, the event
will run from 2-6 pm and will welcome hundreds of community members
who have volunteered their time and skills, their support, or have
benefited from the work of The ReCYCLEry over the past eight years.
All are welcome to join! Suggested donation per person: $8.
Who: Community members, bike mechanics, bike-enthusiasts, children
and their parents, elected officials, transportation gurus, public
health leaders, teachers, and people who will pay the suggested
donation just to join us for some free Southern Rail tater tots!
When: SAVE THE D8! Sunday, October 26th 2-6 pm (The ReCYCLEry will
not be open to the public on this day)
Where: Southern Rail 201-C East Main Street, Carrboro, North
What: Guided bike tours around Chapel Hill and Carrboro for all
experience levels, light food, beer, music, information about an
upcoming bike collection drive though Performance, Volunteer
Appreciation awards, and much more.
Why: The ReCYCLEry is a non-profit organization that provides a
creative workspace to connect salvaged bikes with active community
members, creates opportunities for skill building and volunteerism,
and seeks to increase the use of the bicycle for both transportation
and recreation. The group settled it’s current location a couple of
years ago, has an advisory board of 6 members, and a volunteer corps
of over 400 individuals. This year, we celbrate 8 years of existence
and honor the past while generating support for the future.
A suggested donation of $8 (only $1 per year of existence!) will help
fund continuing programs such as our fall Mobile Repair Days where we
pack a mini-shop onto bike trailers and ride to underserved
communities distributing bikes and teaching basic maintenance. All
donations are tax-deductible and donations of any amount will be
