“Dear Dave and Everyone at the Silicon Valley Bicycle Exchange, Thank you so much for donating 24 bikes to our program! Our families are always so grateful to be given the opportunity to earn bicycles with their hard-earned tickets. Thank you for making it possible! We truly appreciate your on-going support. Best Regards, Caitlyn - Sunday Friends
Catholic Worker House writes to us: “What an amazing operation the Bicycle Exchange is! Not only do they fix up donated bikes to give away, but they teach and mentor others in bike repair.” There are photos and more on the Catholic Worker House website.
Dear Friends at Silicon Valley Bike Exchange, We had another great Bike Shop day last Sunday. Eighteen children were able to earn the “new” bikes through Sunday Friends. They ride off with helmets and big smiles. I love to watch the circles on the blacktop as they get the first feel of riding. Very joyous! ...So wonderful to be working with you! - Janis, Executive Director, Sunday Friends
