Rusty’s Bicycle Recycle is a group of unpaid volunteers doing our best to provide bikes for homeless men, women and children. Having a bike often results in the ability to gain employment as well as for homeless of all ages a chance to better enjoy the world around them.
Russ Durham has had a lifetime love of bicycles and actually at a very young age was doing repairs for his friends. During one of his churches monthly commitments of feeding the homeless in 2008 at the Coalition for the Homeless in Orlando, Russ noticed several bikes chained or just leaning against the fence. They were not in good shape, they had broken chains and flat or missing tires. Right away he thought this would be a great place to share his time and talents.
