Adult Earn-A-Bike

 

Bikes are a great form of transportation to work, transit, school and services. Keeping people and bikes moving is our mission!

Our adult Earn-A-Bike program is for low income teens and adults referred to us by other agencies or shop staff. Participants must apply and complete a series of steps, including a few hours of volunteering in the shop, to earn a refurbished bike for use as personal transportation (and fun, too).

  1. Bike Request: Participant or service agency complete a request form for the size and type of bike needed. Apply below.
  2. Attend Bike Class: Participants must attend a 1-hour Fix-A-Flat course (offered 2x/month on Sundays) in our shop that covers fixing flats and maintaining the chain.
  3. Volunteer: Participant must spend a minimum of 3 hours volunteering in the shop. Participants can choose from a list of bike/shop-related tasks that best suits their abilities.

Funding for this program is provided by organizations and people who donate to Sharing Wheels.
