Recycle Bicycle tune up event looking for tuners

Recycle Bicycle is a Squamish-based non-profit that takes donated bikes, fixes them, and donates them to people who need them. More than 50 bikes have already been donated to the program, and 15 bikes have been passed on to others.

This Saturday, from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m., at PacWest, Recycle Bicycle organizers are hosting a tuning event. Most bikes are only in need of minor repairs and tuning, and anyone with bike tuning skills is invited to help out.

Supporters of the program include the Test of Metal, SORCA, InBiz, What’s On Squamish, Republic Bikes, Corsa Cycles, Tantalus Bike Shop, and others.

Ryder steps up to the tour

Ryder Hesjedal is a well known in Whistler as a past winner of mountain bike races like the Cheakamus Challenge and Test of Metal, but in recent years the Victoria resident has staked his claims on the road. He has been racing extensively in Europe, and this summer will get a chance to race in the Tour de France with Team Garmin-Chipotle. Hesjedal and Michael Barry, originally from Toronto and now on Team Columbia, will be the first Canadians to ride the tour since Gord Fraser in 1997.
