MORE BIKES PLEASE!
BIKE LUND is a volunteer-run organization that seeks to make our community a more bike-friendly place.
So what are we doing?
1. We've been talking with government about making HWY 101 safer.
We built this map that tracks the state of the road from Lund to Powell River. Most of it still does not have an adequate "shoulder" that allows for cyclists to ride safely. The Official Community Plan has put together a plan to finalize this upgrade by 2040, but this is too late!
2. We have been providing free bike tune-ups.
Our volunteers have been setting up bike stations at events, from Lund Dayz to the Lund Flea, fixing and tuning-up bikes, but also teaching folks how to do it themselves.
3. We are building a Community Fleet.
Our team of volunteer mechanics have been collecting donated bikes and fixing them up to offer the community free bikes that will be available in the harbour for all those who want them.
4. We are providing spokes for qathet
Bike Lund is initiating a new program to provide low-income individuals living in our regional district with free, working bicycles to meet their transportation needs. These bikes will be built by volunteers and distributed to people in need with the help of community partners. Bike Lund has recently received funding from the Powell River Community Response Fund (United Way, Powell River Community Foundation and First Credit Union) and expects to have 20-25 free bikes built by next summer (2021).
