Test Drive of Frank's New Ride

Frank Nelson takes a short spin on what will be his ride for a very long journey

On Wednesday, May 10, 2017 our crew met with Frank Nelson, the creator of the Community Give and Get centre, to record him test driving an recumbent ebike at Ebike Universe in Toronto.

We could not have asked for a nicer day, or better cooperation from the business

Frank is a 60-year-old former businessman who is currently undergoing treatment for stage four colon cancer. Despite his terminal diagnosis, Frank is planning a long journey on that bike, starting in Charlottetown and ending in Barrie; taking the long route around Ontario. His goal is to raise enough money to open Community Give and Get centres in various cities across Ontario, just like the one he and his team have opened in Barrie.

All staff are volunteers, and donated items are given away free of charge to individuals and families in need
