A 97 Rock DJ 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 DJ Jickster, said he was overwhelmed by the store’s generosity.

“I like to shop local and the store has been around for 80 years and they are all such trustworthy people. I also love that bike model,” said Jickster, an Attica resident.

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.

Blue Cross & Blue Shield also donated a bike for Jickster to use for his daily exercise rides around the parking lot. The DJ said he plans to donate that one to a worthy child as a Christmas present.
