ANNUAL USED BIKE SALE

The 2018 Used Bike Sale will be the 12th anniversary of this popular Friends of Pepperell fundraising event!

Saturday, May 5: The sale will open at 9:00AM (the line forms earlier!) on the basketball courts at the "Sis McGrath" Pepperell Community Center, 4 Hollis Street. If the weather is lousy, the sale will be held indoors at the Community Center.

Each year, residents have been amazingly wonderful in donating their gently-used bikes, trikes, scooters and ride-ons. On average, we start our sale with about 250 bikes. Over eleven years, we have “recycled” more than 3,000 bikes with the community's support!

Our pay-it-forward objective keeps the bikes local and ensures area families can purchase a gently-used bike for their children, grandchildren - or for themselves, at affordable prices. All unsold bikes at the end of sale are donated to the Worcester Earn-A-Bike program. Plus, all those bikes have been kept out of the landfills! All while helping us to do great things for Pepperell...


DONATE A BIKE AND/OR BUY A BIKE

Seeking donations! If you've outgrown or replaced your current bike, trike, scooter, ride-on, stroller and/or other bike accessories, please donate them to our fundraiser. Tax receipts are available on request.

We can only accept bikes that are usuable and rideable (think; would I purchase this for me or my family?). We will only be able to make MINOR fixes. If you can't ride it, we can't accept it. Otherwise, please do not bring us a bike that is dilapidated, rusty, non-working, or ready to be scrapped.

Proceeds from the sale go toward future projects supporting our mission of enhancing Pepperell's recreational spaces.

Thank you to our event supporters:

Pepperell business, R.H. Willson, continues to help us move the donated bikes in preparation for the sale.

Local organization, Worcester Earn-A-Bike, continues to help at our sale with minor repairs and adjustments.
