On Friday, April 20, the Sixteenth Street Community Health Center collected 500 gently used bikes, that are in good condition, to support the organization’s seventh annual Bike Day event. The first 500 donors received a certificate redeemable for a free 2018 ticket on the Lake Express high-speed ferry.
