LVBC Members Bike Audit and Make Recommendations for SR 322 through Campbelltown
LVBC Provides Education at Lebanon City PD's Night Out
For many years LVBC has been providing bicycle safety to youngsters and their parents at the City Police Department's Night Out. Ron Birch and Dean Auchenbach have been constant volunteers for the event. Taking a closer look at the photo, we are also reminded that member Barry Yiengst built the 2 bicycle wheels for the safety game. Ruth Barley took responsibility for designing and having the LVBC banner made. Financial contributions have allowed us to buy prizes and the display board. LVBC has been built on so many individual contributions.
Volunteers Make Earn a Bike a Success
On a very hot and humid Saturday, five LVBC members worked with clients to enable them to fix and then own bikes. Not having access to cars, these men need reliable bikes to reach their jobs and for other purposes. While Scott Shreve leads this project, he depends on others to help. At this particular Earn a Bike session, Scott was joined by Chris Waldron, Rich Barley, Ed Krebs and Alan Olson.
Every 4th Saturday from March through November, the Earn A Bike program gets together to fix up old bikes. In collaboration with the Lebanon Rescue Mission, Jubilee, the VA and others, the Earn A Bike program helps people earn bikes for transportation to work and to share the joy of biking. E&E Metal Fab provides critically needed warehouse space.
No bicycle mechanic experience is necessary. Please join us. You're likely to make a few new friends along the way while learning some repair techniques. Donations of repairable bikes are always needed. If you have questions, call Scott at 717 273-1571.

BMUFL installed on Walton Avenue, Derry Township
Bicycling on Walton Avenue near the intersection with Hersheypark Drive requires guts and skills. There are right turn lanes to reach eateries, lodgings and other businesses. During the tourism season, conditions worsen. Bikes May Use Full Lane signs were installed. We learned about these newly installed signs from a restaurant employee. He lives in Hummelstown and bikes to and from work on Walton Avenue to save money. He now feels more confident in taking the lane as the signs confirm his right to do so.
