MANCHESTER, NH – The Manchester Police Department  has partnered with Queen City Bike Collective, 373 Union St., at Neighbor Works Southern New Hampshire’s Community Room in Manchester by donating all of its unclaimed bicycles to be repaired and recycled back into the community.

Queen City Bike Collective repairs and recycles bicycles, and holds weekly workshops to assist bike owners in repair and maintenance.

The QC Bike Collective is a non-profit organization that accepts donated bikes, repairs them and sells them at discounted rates. The collective works to get community members, including youth, on bikes and helps riders learn to repair and maintain them.

These bicycle donations from MPD will help keep a consistent supply of bikes on hand that can be returned to service in the community. The Manchester Police Department has already donated approximately 30 bikes since the program started in July 2015.

QC Bike Collective will be holding an open house Dec. 1 from 4-6 p.m. followed by an open shop session from 6-8 p.m. at their headquarters, 373 Union St. All are welcome to come out and learn more about QC Bike Collective’s mission and ongoing plans for 2016.

For more information on the program, contact Abby Easterly, Tyler Glodt or Scott Silberfeld of the QC Bike Collective at 603-493-1720, or email abby@qcbike.org or visit QC Bike Collective on the web.
