Benefit for Bikes Not Bombs presenting David Wax Museum

Sunday, August 4, 2013 at 7:30pm

Join Payomet for a special event to help benefit Bikes Not Bombs.  Bikes Not Bombs is an organization that uses the bicycle as a vehicle for social change.

They reclaim thousands of bicycles each year and create local and global programs that provide skill development, jobs, and sustainable transportation.  Their programs mobilize youth and adults to be leaders in community transformation. 

Each year Bikes Not Bombs collect roughly 6,000 used bicycles and tons of used parts from supporters around Greater Boston and New England.  They ship most of these bikes overseas to economic development projects through International programs in Africa, Latin America, and the Caribbean.  Bikes that don't get shipped often land in their youth programs where teens learn bicycle safety and mechanics skills in the process of earning bikes to keep for themselves.  Their retail Bike Shop also reconditions and sells some of the donated bikes that they receive, employing many graduates of the programs. The Shop's profit from the bicycle sales, parts sales, and repairs goes towards funding youth and international work.
