Each year, Blazin Saddles asks the community to donate bikes in decent-or-better condition to gift to community members during the Christmas season.

This year, the staff is extending that program to assist people in the McKenzie Bridge-Blue River area hard hit by fire. The staff has connections there and hope to give a small boost to the devastated community by providing bikes.

Bikes in “decent or better” condition can be dropped off at the store at 413 W. Hood Ave., Sisters.
