SPRINGFIELD, Vt. – Springfield On the Move has rolled out the first nine distinctive bikes along Main Street. This FUNraiser was undertaken by the design committee of Springfield’s state-designated downtown organization. Junk bikes were donated to the project, stored at HB Energy Solutions, and creatively painted by volunteer artists.
Walk or ride along Main Street to see if you can spot these first nine artsy bikes! Thanks to donors such as Don Barrett, Claremont Cycle Depot, the DeBlock Family, Ashley Ferguson, Ted Foster at 100 River Street, Hodgdon Brothers Salvage, Lane Cycle Shop, Morway Auto Salvage, and Springfield Recyling Center. These first bikes were “reborn” thanks to the artistic efforts of Corky Bond, Kathy Ehlers, Mary and Malia Findley, Ann Marie Freeman, Wendi Germain and Springfield Justice Center, Barbi Weaver, and Val Woodbury.
Many thanks to John Bond, Carol and Bill Eramo, Brian and Tom Hernon, and Peter MacGillivray for assisting Corky Bond and Sandy MacGillivray in this endeavor. The bicycles will be on display through the summer months. Junkers are still available for adoption! If you are interested in painting one or more, please contact SOM at 802-885-1527 or Corky Bond at 802-885-5622.
