Over 240 Bikes Auctioned Off

Annual Bike Auction

Going, going, gone! It didn't take long for all 246 bikes to get snatched up at the annual Buffalo Police Department's Bike Auction this past Saturday at Police Headquarters.

The auction began at 9am, and with a large crowd on hand, the bikes were auctioned off by 11:30am. The bikes went from anywhere from $1 to $100. The bikes come in all makes and models, shapes and sizes, and all different types of conditions. These bikes have been recovered by the Police Department over the last year as either stolen or lost bikes.

It's a way for residents to get a good bike at a great price! The next bike auction will most likely be next summer. This year's auction raised over $8,000 and the proceeds benefit the general fund of the Buffalo Police Department.
