Charlie's FreeWheels
Inspiring a spirit of exploration in youth




The historical Merchandise Building (located at Dundas St. E and Church) will donate 30+ abandoned bicycles to Charlie’s FreeWheels’ Build-a- Bike programming. The bicycles will be given a second life by youth who will learn to re-build the bicycles from the frame up. Youth participants of Charlie’s FreeWheels’ free programming will get to keep the bicycles they build and they will also learn how to safely ride and maintain these bicycles.

A student metropass costs $112 per month and so each bicycle donated has the potential to save youth ~$800 per year, assuming they ride for eight months of the year. Bicycles that are beyond repair will be stripped for parts.

When: On Friday August 12 th at 10 a.m.

Where: The Merchandise Building: 155 Dalhousie St, Toronto, ON M5B

Bicycles will be picked up from the loading dock on the east side of Dalhousie Street just north of Dundas St. E
