Show your support for the four Rye High School teens who started Linking Handlebars, a not-for-profit organization, committed to promoting healthier lifestyles for children in need through the gift of a bicycle. This Holiday season they are trying to get 60 bicycles connected to kids at the Don Bosco Center in Port Chester.

$20 provides one helmet, $30 helps repair one bicycle, $75 provides one child’s bicycle and $100 pays for one teen bicycle. You can also donate a gently used bicycle (you know, that one in your garage that is no longer used…).

Last holiday season, through the generous support of people like you, Linking Handlebars was able to distribute 32 bicycles and helmets to children ages 5 to 16. For many this was the first bicycle they had ever received.

So please do what you can by donating online or mail donation to PO Box 75 Rye, NY 10580.
