Village Spotlight on Keith Oberg
This month we are highlighting the work of Lyon Village resident Keith Oberg. In 2005 Keith founded the organization Bikes for the World which collects used bikes for distribution to those in the greatest of need.
The bikes are repaired if necessary and given to those in the greatest of need. Some are distributed locally but most are sent overseas to Africa or the Caribbean nations.
Keith has actually been doing this locally since 1995, having collected over 200,000 bikes through the years. He was at the recent E-Care recycling event on Oct 19 doing what he does best, collecting about 100 bikes for those in need of transportation.
