Want to overcome your Grinch-y attitude? Bikes for Tykesin North Vancouver, BC, could use a little help with their program that places previously loved bikes with kids that will love them again. They’re asking for kids size tires, tubes, brake pads, cables, v-brake noodles, grips, 6 and 7 speed shifters and saddles to help make the bikes new again. Of course, they will also take bikes! Let them know if you would like to donate some of these items.
