Tim Page on Project ReCycle and Being Chair

Tim Page still remembers riding his bike as a child and the fun times it brought him. But only recently as an adult, has he gotten back on a bike. Just a couple of weeks ago, he bought his first “adult” bike and he took it out for a 10- mile spin and really enjoyed it. He then joined Team PR, got his jersey, and hopes to spend more time in the saddle.

Tim met AJ Stapleton about 6 years ago through church, and that’s how he first came to know about Project ReCycle. “About a year ago AJ approached me about becoming a board member and being more engaged with the operation and organization of Project ReCycle,” said Tim. Prior to that he had been to a bike-give-away, volunteered at some community outreach programs, and done some grant writing for the non-profit. And today Tim sits as Chair.

The reason for our great success and rapid growth lies primarily in the commitment of our volunteers.  It is only fitting to salute them in our first edition of our newsletter. Read more
