Passenger Bike

We love to bike and we would love to share this joy with the elderly who can no longer get out on their bikes so that they, too, can get out on the open road and feel the wind in their hair again. 

Fairview Haven has been providing a safe, loving environment for the elderly for many years in our community.  We have had family live there and were able to witness the quality of care given, and want to give back in some way.   Since we are bike riders and log hundreds of miles on our bikes each year, we are very excited to share our passion for biking with the residents at Fairview Haven and to enable others to also take the residents out for bike rides.

Fairview Haven had a wheelchair bike for a while and the residents loved it, but it is no longer in service.  We want to replace it and started doing some research.   The bike that we and their activity department chose holds 2 people at a time, allows for easy access for wheelchair patients, is secure and comfortable, and has a motor assist.

We would love to be able to put this bike into service by the summer of 2019.  All money raised will go directly to Fairview Haven into a fund for this bike and its maintenance.

All online donations are tax-exempt just as a check would be, and you will receive a letter acknowledging your donation.

However, if you prefer to not donate online, please give or mail a check to JoEllen, Teri, or directly to Dixie at Fairview Haven.   Please make the check out to Fairview Haven and write "bike fund" on the memo line.  As we get donations that way, we will decrease the goal of the online campaign.   THANK YOU!
