Need a bike for Christmas?

Blazin Saddles’ annual bicycle donation drive has seen extraordinary participation — and the Sisters bike shop is seeking people to benefit from the community’s generosity.

“The bike drive is going crazy this year,” said shop owner Casey Meudt. “We have had more bikes dropped off to us this year than ever before. We have kids’ bikes, adult bikes, mountain bikes, commuter bikes and more so if you or someone you know that lives in or around Sisters could use some help this year in the form of a bicycle, please contact us.”

The bikes donated are not new but Blazin Saddles is cleaning, tuning and replacing parts as needed.

We will be providing bikes on a first-come, first-serve basis so it is not guaranteed everyone will get a bike,” Meudt noted.

Those who wish to nominate themselves or others in need can do so until December 19. To sign up, visit the store at 413 W. Hood Ave., call 541-719-1213, or email [email protected]

“In order for the request to count we need first and last name, phone number or email, height, age and gender of each individual requesting a bike,” Meudt said.
