 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.

Come early to partake in the Green Drinks happy hour for environmentally-minded folks from 5-7 p.m.
We need a new board member. See the blog post for details.

    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.
