Ways you can help:

  • Wrench on bikes all this week at the shop! No need to sign-up; simply drop in during our normal hours (posted in the sidebar to the right of this article) and help get a bike ready for it’s new rider.
  • Sign-up to help out at the event! The event runs from 10 to 4 at Gilbert Heights Elementary, 12839 SE Holgate Blvd, and we need help setting it up in the morning, fitting helmets and bikes during the event, as well as working on bikes, taking pictures, talking to folks, and, of course, tearing it all back down. Let us know how you’d like to be involved by filling out this form.
  • Donate to support this and other programming from Bikes for Humanity!
