The Lake Express Ferry will be supporting bicycle charities again this year with its annual bike drive this Friday, April 29 from 8 a.m. to noon at the Lake Express Terminal, 2330 S. Lincoln Memorial Drive.

Lake Express will provide a complimentary round-trip passenger ticket to the first 500 donors who bring in a gently used bicycle to the Lake Express terminal. Donations will benefit Dream Bikes and health programs provided through the Sixteenth Street Community Health Centers.

A news release says since 2010, Lake Express has collected more than 5,000 bicycles that have been distributed through organizations in Milwaukee, Madison, Chicago, and internationally.
