Bikes are a great form of transportation to work, transit, school and services.
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 to earn a refurbished bike fully equipped for use as personal transportation (and fun, too).
- Bike Request: Clients or service agency complete a request form for the size and type of bike needed. Apply below.
- Bike Match: We meet with the client to finalize selection of a bike we have in stock (max value $250).
- Basic Bike Class: Client must attend or view a basic class that covers fixing flats, maintaining your chain and basic gear and brake adjustments (1-2 hours).
- Bike Ride / Final Class: Client will meet a staff or volunteer at Sharing Wheels (or other location) for a test ride and final class on local bike routes, bikes on transit and basic bike laws.
This program is partially funded by the City of Everett, Community Development Block Grant program. Funding also provided by people who donate to Sharing Wheels.
