Over 3,500 bikes donated thanks to Scituate man

The Patriot Ledger reported that Richard Bonanno was driving on the west side of Scituate four years ago when he saw an expensive mountain bike at the end of a driveway - thrown out with the trash. He stuck it in the back of his truck, took it home, fixed it up and gave it to a neighbor’s kid.

“The next day there were three more. So I picked them all up,” he said. “I gave all three to a friend in Hull, who said four kids came by wanting the bikes. He gave away three then called me and said ‘do you have any more?’ and I said ‘I’ll see what I can do.’ I started looking for them after that. That’s how it all started.”
