This year’s used bicycle sale, a collaboration between the City of Sherbrooke and Estrie Aide, will be held on Saturday, May 5 from 8 a.m. till noon at the Estrie Aide store on Wellington Street South. This year’s sale has fewer bikes than past years. There are roughly 400, compared to averages closer to 600 in previous sales. “I have a theory on that,” said Claude Belleau, Executive Director of Estrie Aide. According to Belleau, since the sale started, the local community has been very supportive, cleaning out their attics and garages, bringing in their bicycles. Now in its sixth year, Belleau said there are likely fewer bikes laying around. In the past five years, over 2,500 bikes have been sold, Belleau said. The annual event is always popular, often with people lining up in front of Estrie Aide before the 8 a.m. opening of the sale. In additional to the bike sale, there is a complimentary helmet sale taking place. Estrie Aide will have roughly 100 new helmets available for sale at cost, as well as some gently used options for between $3 and $5. See full story in the Thursday, April 26th edition of The Record.
