The Chilliwack Restorative Justice fall bike sale will be held at McCammon elementary (9601 Hamilton Street) this year.

Mark Saturday, Oct. 22 on the calendar for this year’s Fall Bike Auction.

And make a note of its new location — McCammon elementary school.

Chilliwack Restorative Justice and Youth Advocacy Association will hold its annual event as it has in the past. But this year, its long-running spot at Bernard elementary was not available.

The auction will be the same as always. Volunteers will unload hundreds of bikes early in the morning of the event. The public will be allowed to preview the lot of bikes at 9 a.m., with bidding to begin at 10 a.m.

All of the funds raised go toward restorative justice programs in Chilliwack.

And while many of the bikes will go for dirt cheap, there are always some high-end, brand name bikes that draw out the big bidders, too. Guywires Mobile Cycle Tech will be on site again offering bike inspections for a donation of $5.

More than 100 bikes have been donated for the sale by the City of Chilliwack and the community.

McCammon elementary is at 9601 Hamilton Street.

Payment can be made by cash and credit card, and the sale will go on until all bikes are sold.

Note: The bike auction was originally scheduled for Saturday, Oct. 15 (as reported in the Oct. 7 issue of The Progress). The date was changed due to expected severe weather conditions.
