"It all started when I was a young boy. I used to watch my Uncle Pat in the basement of his machine shop. He would collect and fix up old bicycles that he found at the town dump. After cleaning and repairing these bikes he would give them to the kids in his neighborhood. He had only repaired half a dozen bikes but that really impressed me. A voice in the back of my head said … 'Wow that’s pretty cool… if he could do 6 bikes… I could do 6000'. When I became an adult I started finding and repairing old bikes out of my garage and giving them to needy children at my wife’s elementary school where she was a teacher. Many years later I joined Sound Cyclists Bicycle Club. Here I found an army of like-minded people who helped me to expand my vision and create a larger goal of making recycled bikes available to the entire community. Hence in 2012 Northeast Community Cycles, a 501(c) 3 non-profit was born… getting bigger and better every year."
