Bicas group asking UA students for bike donations

Posted: Updated:

TUCSON, Ariz. -- Every year, hundreds of bikes on the U of A campus are left behind by kids going home for the summer.

Bike riding advocate group Bicas is asking students to donate their bikes instead of leaving them chained up to eventually be thrown away by the university.

"There's a big maintanence cost to the university to cut and impound all the bikes that are abandon on campus every year where as these bikes could be better utilized in the community," said Kristin McCray from Bicas.

The group says the hardest part is getting the word out to the students that this program is available.
