Unclaimed Bikes Find New Homes

More than 700 unclaimed bicycles were up for auction over the weekend at the Varsity View Sportsplex. The city's annual bike auction drew hundreds to get a new summer ride at a discounted price. About 200 bikes were given full tuneups by volunteer mechanics as part of a new partnership with the Winnipeg Repair Education and Cycling Hub (WRENCH). Bike registrations were also sold for $5 to ensure these bikes don't end up back at a similar auction in the future. (STAN MILOSEVIC / MANITOBAPHOTOS.COM)
