16th Annual Kids Bike Swap June 10

We hold a bike swap every year for growing kids in the community to get a properly sized bike that fits them at an affordable price. See our Kids Bike Swap page for more details.

Volunteer Repair Parties Every Thursday

Get greasy practicing your mechanic skills or simply cleaning and polishing kids bikes to benefit our community. No experience is needed – just bring some family or friends along to make it even more fun doing good for kids and the community. Every Thursday from 6 to 9 p.m.

You can also help work on kids bikes anytime the shop is open Wednesday through Sunday. Our goal is to have 65 bikes ready for kids to exchange at the swap in June.

Get involved in the Sharing Wheels Community! There are many ways that you can help support our work. Head over to our Volunteers page for more info.

We also offer a Basic Mechanics Course that covers trail-side repairs like fixing a flat and basic adjustments.

    Have you talked to the Everett Police Department about your need for bikes? I work at Trinity Lutheran Church and a year ago we had a bike left on our property, when we talked to a office about turniing it in to them we were told that they had over 400 unclaimed bikes sitting around and if we could find it a new home they would rather that then take it in. They may have some suitable for older, bigger children that would be useful.

      Thanks – Sharing Wheels does get bikes from the Everett Police Department, and other law enforcement agencies, on occasion. It’s easy to get used bikes. What’s harder is putting the time in to make sure the bikes are safe and rideable. That’s why we love our volunteers.
