“The Bicycle Man” Donates 30 Bicycles to the DeKalb County Sheriff’s Office to be Given Away for Christmas

The DeKalb County Sheriff’s Office recently received a donation of 30 bicycles from the “Bicycle Man!”

“The Bicycle Man,” also known as Mr. Leon McClung, is 91 years old and has made it his mission to repair discarded bicycles for children in need during the holidays.  Mr. McClung ensures each bicycle is in great working order before giving it to a child in need.

Each bike comes with a note attached that reads:  “Hi, take a look at these 91-year-old hands.  God has guided these hands to move over every part of this bicycle to make sure it is in the best looking and working order possible.” “I hope you cherish and take care of it as much as I have enjoyed fixing it for you. Now as it leaves these hands and goes into your hands, may God guide your hands to have many days of enjoyment from riding this bike.” “May it guide you to always be looking to God for guidance in your life also. If you do this the joy you knew from riding the bike will be much greater by following his guidance in your life,” the note says.

Mr. McClung, his son Bruce, and Fort Payne Fire Department Battalion Chief Wade Gorham recently delivered the bicycles. Our deputies will be distributing the bicycles to children in need this Christmas. We also were able to provide several bicycles to Mr. McClung that our deputies and road crews had recovered to be fixed.  If you know a child in need this Christmas that would like a bicycle, feel free to call our office at (256)845-3801.

DeKalb County Sheriff Nick Welden said of the donation: “This is such a great service that Mr. McClung provides for children in need. He not only donates bicycles to children in DeKalb County, but to several other counties in our area.”

“Mr. McClung fixes hundreds of bicycles each year, and we are proud that our deputies get to help him make children happy during the holidays,” said Sheriff Welden.

“God Bless!” Concluded Sheriff Welden.
