Community Bikes

Thanks to combined volunteer efforts, 75 bikes, helmets, and locks along with medical supplies, were recently shipped to St. Kitts and Nevis in the Caribbean. Pictured, from left, are Duane Martinez, Community Bikes volunteer coordinator, Scott O'Mara, of Knight Hawk Transport, and Derek Busher, an employee of the Village of Hamilton.

On Jan. 24, Scott O’Mara, of Knight Hawk Transport in Canastota, wheeled his truck into 44 Milford Street in Hamilton, home of the Community Bikes workshop space donated by Ed Ray of Ray’s Wayside. Derek Busher, an employee of the village of Hamilton, was on hand with a forklift, made available by the village. Working together with Community Bikes Volunteer Coordinator Duane Martinez, the three loaded 75 bikes, helmets and locks along with a pallet of medical supplies, onto the truck for transport to an air base in Niagara Falls.
