Tuesday & Thursday nights in Everett
Remember that feeling of joy when you got your very own bicycle? Kids still love to ride, and Sharing Wheels volunteers help make that happen.
Each year we have a goal of refurbishing 100+ bikes for low income families. Kid bikes aren’t complicated to fix, but they do need a lot of TLC.
Signup to help fix kid bikes
Work Parties are 6 to 9 p.m. Tuesdays and Thursdays, Oct 10 through Dec. 5. Size is limited to 6 volunteers each night. Advanced registration is required.
Mechanical experience helpful but not required. Tasks range from cleaning bikes and fixing flats to replacing cables or adjusting hubs.
Signup on our Calendar for the night (or nights) you can help. We love repeat volunteers!

Support our Kids Bike Program
Bike donations – not needed
We do not need any more kid bikes at this time. We have 75 kids bikes in storage waiting to be restored to riding glory. If we need more kid bikes, we’ll put out a call through our contacts and social media.
We put about $25 in new parts on each bike to make it safe and shiny for the kids. That adds up to thousands of dollars in tires, seats, handlebar grips, etc.
Businesses and individuals are encouraged to donate cash or in-kind support.
PIZZA and sandwiches help fuel our work. If you have an “in” or a gift card with a restaurant, contact Christy. Or simply make a donation to Sharing Wheels.
