VERGENNES/MIDDLEBURY — Little City Cycles owner Tim Mathewson has seen people toss away hundreds of bikes during his 40 years repairing the machines. Some of them only needed a new tire, chain or a little tender loving care to remain road worthy.

Mathewson rescues copious numbers of bicycles from the scrap heap; and, crucially, he possesses the knowledge and skill to fix them up and give them new homes.

“These bikes… are like foster bikes,” Mathewson said during a Tuesday interview.
