A Second Chance for Unloved Bikes

Daventry Town Council are asking local residents to check their sheds/outhouses/garages and donate any old unwanted bikes to help ensure the success of a community project. We would like your help to put Daventry on the map and are appealing for donations of any old bikes which will be distributed to participating schools to paint pink and decorate in their own unique style.

Once decorated the bicycles will be positioned around Daventry Town Centre to welcome top class cyclists competing in the final stage of the Aviva women's tour on Sunday the 19th June 2016. It's hoped that hundreds of people will line London Road and New Street in Daventry to cheer the riders on as the race comes to the town centre for the first time.

Any residents wishing to donate a bicycle please call Daventry Town Council on 01327 301246 or via email admin@daventrytowncouncil.gov.uk.

The Town Council are pleased to be working with Danetre Rotary Club, Leisure Lakes Bikes, Daventry Cycling Club and Northamptonshire Sport on the pink bike project for Daventry. Further details of the event will be announced on our website shortly.
