The "Broken Spoke" Bike Program
The Broken Spoke Bike program was established at PCHS in 2015 under the supervision of volunteers Mr. Aubrey Foley & Mr Coers.  
Follow us on Twitter: @PCHSBikes

Mission:

Engage students in the understanding and benefits of refurbishing bicycles to provide enjoyment and transportation for themselves and those less fortunate.
There are several environmental benefits of the program including reducing landfill overload.  Students are also taught mechanical skills.

Donations:

Old bike donations are always accepted along with spare parts and tools.  Just call the school at 905 835-1186 or stop by!
