TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTHI) – A local man is doing his part in helping to replace children’s bikes that were recently stolen.
Jeff Winchester is doing his best to combat a terrible situation, with an act of kindness.
On Monday night Winchester and his two daughters saw a story on News 10 Night watch about kids having their bikes stolen on a street in Terre Haute.
Winchester recently opened up a new bike repair shop in Clinton, Indiana called Pike Bike Tune-up and Repair.
It’s not only a business but also a hobby for him and his daughters, something they do together.
Winchester decided to utilize his business and fix donated bikes for free and then re-donate the bikes back to kids whose bikes were stolen.
Winchester says he really needs bikes for boys and girls ages 10 to 14; they’re the hardest to find.
If you would like to donate a bicycle or need to replace a stolen bike for a child, you can send Winchester a message on the Pike Bike Tune-up and Repair Facebook page.
