The Beverly Bike Committee, in partnership with non-profit organization Bikes Not Bombs, is hosting the second annual bike drive, which will include live music, information on upcoming events, and a bike-powered blender demo.

The event will take place on Saturday June 29 from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m. at Ellis Square.

This is the committee's second year partnering with Bikes Not Bombs, a nationally acclaimed, Boston-based organization that annually collects hundreds of unused bikes, fixes them up, and then redistributes to families in need or to partner communities in developing countries.

Bike Committee volunteers will be on hand to take the donated bikes, as well as extra wheels, tires, tubes, and components, and prepare them for packing. 

There will be four parking spots set aside along Briscoe Street and Essex Street for dropping off any donations.

Several bikes have already been collected by Centraal Cycles and the Beverly Police Department for the event thus far.
