Work Party Sunday, Nov. 22
Give low income kids something to be thankful for by helping us reach our goal of 100 bikes for Christmas House. Come to the shop for a few hours the Sunday before Thanksgiving and we’ll put you to work cleaning, fixing or pumping tires on kids bikes.
- 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 22 – lunch provided
We are also accepting donations of gently-used, easy to fix (no gears!) kids bikes to help reach our goal. Bring bikes to the shop any time during regular or work party hours.

Kid’s Bike Swap – Sunday, June 7, 2015
Thanks to many volunteers, 22 kids went home very happy from this year’s swap. Kids and parents brought bikes to trade in for a bigger model. It was a beautiful day for test riding in the parking lot.
Monday Night Roller Night – Fall 2015
We haven’t picked the start date or time yet, but when we do, plan to join us Mondays for a great workout and awesome music on the rollers. Bring your rollers and bike, and any music you might want to share. Riding on a bike trainer is also OK, and we will have extra trainers and rollers to try out for the uninitiated.
Christmas House 2015
At Sharing Wheels, we believe that kids of all ages – and adults – can benefit from a bicycle. Christmas House touches thousands of kids each year, so we try to fix up as many kids bikes as possible each fall.
Thanks to the hours of work and fun by many Sharing Wheels volunteers, we delivered 105 bikes to Christmas House in 2014. We may break that record in 2015, thanks to a good start on bikes that are currently in storage courtesy of Everett Downtown Storage (thanks for their community support!)
Christmas House provides a helmet with every bike, and also purchases or gets donated new bikes for families to select. The Sharing Wheels bikes add variety and choices and help a few more families go home with the joy of two wheels (sometimes three!)
