The Lake Saint Louis Police Department is partnering with St. Louis BWorks and the Lake Saint Louis Farmers and Artists Market to take those old bicycles off your hands! The bike drive will take place on Saturday, July 13 from 8 a.m. until noon at the Lake Saint Louis Farmers and Artists Market. The market is located at The Meadows shopping center at Highway 40 & Lake Saint Louis Blvd.
A members of the police department's bike patrol unit will be on hand to assist BWorks with the collection of bicycles of any style and in any condition. In addition, bicycle parts will be accepted. 2019 marks the 30th year of St. Louis BWorks Earn A Bike program. Bike patrol officers will have bicycle safety information available during the event.
The old bikes, or bicycles in need of repair, will be reconditioned or rebuilt by BWorks (www.bworks.org). They will eventually find their way to deserving children, who may not be able to afford to purchase a bicycle on their own, but have the opportunity to earn one through various programs and projects.
