Santa’s elves make most of peddle power

Santa and his elves have collected an assortment of previously peddled bicycles, fixed them up and have made them available for kids who might need one.

If you or someone you know has a safe and responsible home for a new-old bike in mind, and knows of someone who could really use one, here’s what to do:

Write a letter to Santa telling him why you or someone you know should be the proud owner of one of these bicycles. Include the prospective recipient’s age, contact information and other details.

There are no strings attached. It is, after all, the holiday season, the season of giving. For info, details, pictures and updates, go to “Santa’s Cycles”, on Facebook.

Letters should be sent to Santa by Dec. 15, at: Santa’s Cycles, P.O. Box 457, Friday Harbor, WA, 98250; or email:
