This year’s auction will see a 70 bicycles on the block which more than usual.
“The delayed auction has led to more bikes being amassed,” explained Marc Depatie, corporate communications coordinator with TPS.
The annual auction is normally held in the spring but was postponed due to COVID-19.
It is scheduled to take place this Saturday.
“We have 70 some pedal bikes of various descriptions that we cannot locate the owner,” said Depatie.
In addition to bicycles, he said, “We have tools, some automotive equipment and some jewelry has been located and turned over to the Timmins Police that we were unable to locate the owner. So there are some varied items — always a bargain.”
People can come by and view the items up for action beginning at 8 a.m.
The auction itself begins at 8:30 a.m.
