Kids’ Bike Swap Sunday, May 28th
Has your child (4- 10yr old) outgrown his or her bike? Come by Christie Pits Park and swap that bike for another and assist CultureLink with their cycling program for immigrants and refugees. Donate your child’s pre-loved outgrown bike and exchange it for another.
Bikes which do not find a home will be donated to immigrants and refugees through Culturelink. Please refer to www.culturelink.ca for further information.
Here are the details:
Date: Sunday, May 28, 2017
Where: Christie Pits Park, North West corner of Bloor St W and Christie St Drop off Time: 10:00am to 1:00pm
Swap Time: 1:00pm to 5:00 pm
What to do:
- Drop off your child’s pre-loved bike at Christie Pits Park starting at 10am on Sunday, May 28
- The bike must be in safe and rideable condition. CR reserves the right to refuse any bicycle.
- Fill out a donation agreement and receive an exchange token
- Check in the bike at one of the stations where a mechanic will perform a basic safety check.
- Return at 1pm with your exchange token to select another bike. Tokens are numbered.
Drop your bike off early for the best selection at 1pm.
Question: Will the used bike be sold?
No. Your bike will be considered a donation to the swap event. If you have donated a bike you will be able to exchange it for another donated bike if one is available in the size you need.
Question: What happens to bikes not exchanged?
If the bike does not find a new home, CultureLink will donate the bikes to immigrants and refugees.
Question: Will a warranty be provided?
These are used bikes and as such warranties are not available. They will have undergone a basic safety inspection by volunteer mechanics the morning of the swap, however, at no time does the bicycle at the swap become the property of Councillor Layton or CultureLink and neither are responsible for the mechanical condition of any bicycle exchanged.
Question: May I donate an adult bike?
Yes, we will accept adult bike donations, however, the swap is ONLY for children’s bikes (4-10 yr olds)
