Growth and Expansion

Cumberland Rotary Club and Western MD WheelmenOne weekend, seven collections, 705 bikes! It seems like only last week we were bragging about our biggest collection weekend of the year (it was April 30th to be exact)...but we just knocked that weekend out of that top spot with three very strong collections stretching from western Maryland to Baltimore to Apex, North Carolina.

This year the Cumberland Rotary Club and the Western Maryland Wheelmen braved the rain and braced for a lower turn out at their annual bike collection with BfW. No such thing. They exceeded expectations and collected well over 100 bikes, almost overfilling our rented Penske truck again (they did it once before a couple years ago). Veteran driver Phil Ruth, overcame his own obstacles to help fit all those bikes in the truck before returing to our Arlington VA warehouse. Bungees save the day! Read more about that record weekend...

Also the weekend of May 21st, BfW welcomed new collection partner The Peak United Methodist Church in North Carolina. This collection (also over 100 bikes) really helped ramp up our collection efforts in the Carolinas where we hope to ship a container by the end of the year. Find out more about that Carolina effort on our blog.
