600 bikes sell in three hours
Close to six hundred bicycles sold in only three hours at the City of Sherbrooke/Estrie Aide annual used bike sale, held last Saturday at Estrie Aide, on Wellington Street. More than $17,000 was raised and it will all be invested back into the community. Organizers are already planning next year’s Foire aux velos 2017, and anyone wanting to donate a used bike can bring it to Estrie Aide, 345 Wellington South, Sherbrooke.
The City of Sherbrooke and Estrie Aide thank all the buyers, the members of the cooperative la Deraille who adjusted the bikes for free, and the fifty volunteers who helped all morning.
