May 12 meeting: Celebrate Bike Month with pizza & prizes
Plan to join us Thursday, May 12 for a special club social to celebrate Bike Month. The club will host members for pizza, salad and non-alcoholic beverages from our favorite Brooklyn Brothers Pizza. Gather there starting at 6 p.m. for dinner, with some fun club door prizes, an overview of upcoming bike tours, events, and volunteer opportunities, and a little business starting at 7 p.m. - all at 1919 Hewitt in Everett. This is our last meeting before the summer break, so don't miss it.
Gently-used kids bikes are needed!
If you have some unused kids bikes in your garage - or would
like to help your neighbors or in-laws empty their garages, please
bring bikes to Sharing Wheels during open hours on Tuesday, Wednesday or
Thursday. Decent bikes with 20 and 24-inch wheels are always in demand.
Bike Swap date is Sunday, June 12. Kids get to bring in a
bike that is too small, and trade it for a bigger bike.
Volunteers needed every Tuesday
There are regular
kids bike repair parties from 4 to 9 p.m. every Tuesday at Sharing Wheels. Club members and anyone else willing to get greasy is welcome to attend. No mechanical experience necessary.
Sharing Wheels Community Bike Shop is located at
2531 Broadway in Everett, with the entrance at the back of the building
(north of QFC).
