From now through April 29, PODS® of San Francisco is lending its support to Mikes Bikes as the Bay Area bicycle retailer collects donations for their ongoing Africa Bike program. PODS® containers have been placed at 8 Mike’s Bikes stores throughout Northern California and the public is encouraged to help fill them with donations of new or used bikes that will then be sent to Mike’s Bikes Sister Shops in Africa.

In 2011, a great business collaboration was born when PODS teamed up for the first time with Mike’s Bikes, the largest independent bicycle retailer in the U.S., helping them to collect more than 500 donated bicycles during a two-week bike drive in June.

“Last year’s partnership was a huge success,” said Marshall Hawkins, Regional Director of Operations for PODS Enterprises, Inc. “We are thrilled to again lend our support to Mike’s Bikes and hope that during this year’s three week bike drive, we can break all records and help them collect over 1,000 bikes.”

In 2007, Mike’s Bikes began the Africa Sister Shops program to build a self-sustaining supply of working bikes in Africa and to promote economic growth by teaching African entrepreneurs how to run a bike business. Mike’s Bikes collects and sends donated bikes and start-up funding to developing African countries as well provides mentoring to the owners of its Africa Sister Shops with the goal of creating African job opportunities.

During the three week bike drive, donated PODS® containers are serving as temporary bicycle donation centers and providing on-site storage and then, at the drive’s conclusion, PODS will transport the containers to a central staging area where volunteers and staff will prepare the bikes for shipment to Africa.

All tax-deductible Mikes Bikes donations will be accepted through April 29 at the following store locations from 10 am. to 6 pm. daily:

• 2161 University Ave., Berkeley, CA 94704
• 201 N. Santa Cruz Ave., Los Gatos, CA 95030
