Aggie Blue Bikes Donates Bicycles to Cache County Sub for Santa
Thursday, Jan. 03, 2013
USU's Aggie Blue Bikes coordinated a collaborative project that provided 16 refurbished bicycles to the Cache County Sub for Santa program in 2012.
Aggie Blue Bikes, a program at Utah State University, successfully refurbished 16 children’s bicycles for Cache County Sub for Santa with the help of seven volunteers, donations from various community members and powder coating from Cache Valley Coating.
ABB staff and volunteers spent more than 100 hours working on the bikes. The work included stripping the donated bikes down, cleaning each part of the bike and all of its components and then building the bikes back to useable form.
All 16 bicycles are now in immaculate working condition, most of them with fresh paint and brand new parts, according to Stephanie Tomlin, Aggie Blue Bikes program coordinator.
“Fixing up these children’s bicycles is definitely a collaborative effort between Aggie Blue Bikes and the Cache community,” Tomlin said. “It is support like this that shows us how dedicated Cache Valley is to the providing a helping hand over the holidays.”
