Giving Used Bikes a New Home
Sharing Wheels Community Bike Shop is a non-profit organization dedicated to “connecting unused bikes to people who need wheels.”
We are located at 2531 Broadway in Everett, Washington and welcome everyone to join us in our shop. Donated bikes are available for sale after they are overhauled and in safe mechanical condition. Our benches and tools are free to use.
Open House Sept. 29: Hello, Goodbye to Shop Managers
Sharing Wheels has hired our first paid shop manager, Kevin Brown. Long-time shop manager Kristi Knodell – whose time was all-volunteer – is moving on.
Come say “Hello” and “Goodbye” at a shop open house from 5 to 7 p.m. on Thursday, Sept. 29. We’ll have soup and a cake to snack on while you meet Kevin, hear how the shop is changing, and give Kristi a big thank you for all her time and expertise (we are collecting $$ for a thank you gift if you’d like to contribute – talk to Larry or Kevin in shop).
We Need Storage Space for Kids Bikes
Every year after our Kids Bike Swap in June we place about 100 kids bike in storage. These bikes are destined for Christmas House in December. Downtown Storage has comped us a free space in the past, but this year storage is tight. In September we begin working on bikes and rotate them out between storage and the shop.By mid December bikes have all been delivered to Christmas House in Everett.
We need a place that is secure, dry and relatively close to the shop. Please help spread the word and help us find storage.
