The ReCYCLEry, http://www.recyclery.info, is celebrating its first 8th anniversary by hosting a fun-filled family-oriented gathering on October 26th that will include food, music, cruiser-style bike rides and more. Located at the Southern Rail Restaurant near Weaver Street Market, the event will run from 2-6 pm and will welcome hundreds of community members who have volunteered their time and skills, their support, or have benefited from the work of The ReCYCLEry over the past eight years. All are welcome to join! Suggested donation per person: $8.
Who: Community members, bike mechanics, bike-enthusiasts, children and their parents, elected officials, transportation gurus, public health leaders, teachers, and people who will pay the suggested donation just to join us for some free Southern Rail tater tots!
When: SAVE THE D8! Sunday, October 26th 2-6 pm (The ReCYCLEry will not be open to the public on this day)
Where: Southern Rail, http://www.sr-nc.com/, 201-C East Main Street, Carrboro, North Carolina, 27510
What: Guided bike tours around Chapel Hill and Carrboro for all experience levels, light food, beer, music, information about an upcoming bike collection drive though Performance, Volunteer Appreciation awards, and much more.
Why: The ReCYCLEry is a non-profit organization that provides a creative workspace to connect salvaged bikes with active community members, creates opportunities for skill building and volunteerism, and seeks to increase the use of the bicycle for both transportation and recreation. The group settled it’s current location a couple of years ago, has an advisory board of 6 members, and a volunteer corps of over 400 individuals. This year, we celbrate 8 years of existence and honor the past while generating support for the future.
A suggested donation of $8 (only $1 per year of existence!) will help fund continuing programs such as our fall Mobile Repair Days where we pack a mini-shop onto bike trailers and ride to underserved communities distributing bikes and teaching basic maintenance. All donations are tax-deductible and donations of any amount will be greatly appreciated.
