LOGAN, UT – Tis the season for giving, and Utah State University’s Aggie Blue Bikes is preparing for another year of donating children’s bicycles to Cache County’s Sub for Santa program. ABB staff and volunteers donate roughly 100 hours of work on the children’s bikes and have donated more than 70 children bicycles over the last six years to families in need.


ABB subsists on community and USU support, volunteer service and, most of all, donations. ABB accepts tax-exempt bike donations throughout the year. Children’s bike donations are given to the Cache County Sub for Santa but only after ABB staff has worked diligently to insure they are in pristine condition.  Additionally, adult bike donations are transformed into “Aggie Blue Bikes” which USU students can check-out for up to three months free of charge. ABB also accepts monetary donations to pay for supplies to maintain the bikes.


Although ABB contributes the labor to rebuild the donated bikes, they rely on support from various organizations in Cache Valley. In past years, Cache Valley Coating has donated the labor and the materials to powder coat the children’s bikes, making them look brand new when they are presented to the children. And last year the Linder family of Cache Valley donated the money needed to purchase new parts for all the children’s bikes.  


To make a donation or find out more information, contact Stephanie Tomlin, ABB Program Coordinator, at (435) 640-7550 or stephanie.tomlin@usu.edu.
