Deejay is given two new bikes to replace one stolen at event

A 97 Rock deejay now has been presented with two new bicycles to replace the one that was stolen Sunday evening while he was hosting a charity event in Lancaster.

Adam Miller Toys & Bicycles in Batavia, where Dave Jickster had purchased his original bike, presented him with an upgraded black Transeo 3.0 Tuesday evening. Jickster, who goes by the name D.J. Jickster, said he was overwhelmed by the store’s generosity.

Jickster, who is hosting the seventh annual “Operation: Rock Out Hunger” to benefit the Food Bank of Western New York, has been living in a 48-foot trailer in the parking lot of Quaker Steak & Lube on Transit Road in Lancaster. His original bike was stolen sometime Sunday evening.

BlueCross BlueShield of Western New York also donated a bike for Jickster to use for his daily exercise rides around the parking lot. Jickster said he plans to donate that one to a worthy child as a Christmas present.
