 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).

Read more about Shop Manager Kevin Brown on our blog.

 

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.

We accept donations of checks or cash in our Everett location. Send a check by mail to Sharing Wheels, 2531 Broadway, Everett WA 98201 . We are a 501(c)3 organization. EIN 47-0905216

Donations of new or used bikes in good condition are taken whenever the shop is open. With each bike donation we ask for a $5 cash donation to help buy the new parts or cleaner needed to make it look shiny for the next owner.

    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.
