MADISON, NJ - Got Bikes? Need Bikes?  A community bicycle swap and sale will be hosted at Central Avenue School, 50 Central Ave. in Madison, from 9a.m. to 11 a.m. on Sunday May 15. 

The “Bike Swap” was conceived seven years ago when organizer and Madison resident, Lisa Moro, “got tired of seeing perfectly rideable bikes in the garbage around town."

Moro says,"Landfills are growing and so is our carbon footprint. We need to stop throwing away bikes once our kids grow out of them or grow tired of them and start recycling gently-used bikes and keep them on the road."

All bikes at the "swap" are sold for $10 no matter what the size or condition.

100% of proceeds from this event are donated to PeaceWorks.org whose mission it is to support grassroots community organizations in Nicaragua. PeaceWorks.org works to help overcome poverty, violence against women and environmental destruction.

"This is a great way for our community to donate to a great cause while also providing a service to people by making a gently used bicycle more obtainable for a low cost," said Moro. 

Donations of gently-used bikes are greatly needed for the charity “Bike Swap” to make the event a success.  For information or to donate, contact Lisa Moro at lamoro46@gmail.com or (201) 323-4135.
