By Andrew Harris

Next Saturday May 25th from 4PM to 8PM unwanted or unused bikes of any size can be dropped off at 18 State St in Hornell. Larry will get all donated bikes back into shape and safe to ride for anyone who might need them. Remember, Larry gives away bikes for FREE, no strings attached!!

Since he started this mission the “Bikeman” has given away 886 bikes since Oct 2nd 2021. If you had a bike as a kid, then you realize what a profound act of kindness this mission delivers. It is simple, Larry wants all kids who want a bike to have a bike.

Earlier on Saturday the 25th, Larry will be doing his thing and giving away bikes at the fabulous Hornell WildFlowers Festival. After the festival he will be accepting new donations that are ready for his repair and regift mission.

Hornell’s famous US Postman Steve Harrison did this great piece back in 2022 on Larry:

Bikes received on May 25th will be repaired and given back out at future events. If you can’t make it on the 25th, please contact Larry to donate:
