Last week, Chris and Aaron from Blackstone Bicycle Works came to pick up 49 bikes, three frames, and various wheels that had been abandoned on campus, as well as 8 bikes from Residential Services.

Kevin Applewhite, recycles bike share intern and Blackstone employee, helped Chris and Aaron load the bikes into the back of two pick up trucks, piling them high and tying them together with old inner tubes for the ride back to the bike shop. All of the bikes will be refurbished and resold to help fund the non-profit bike shop's youth program.
