Sharing Wheels: Kids Bike Work Parties

Written by Tall Bryan on . Posted in Advocacy, Events, Volunteer, Washington No Comments

Sharing Wheels Community Bike Shop is a non-profit organization dedicated to “connecting unused bikes to people who need wheels.” Once a year in June kids have the opportunity to trade in their bike they have outgrown and get a bike that fits them. At the Kids Bike Swap, kids donate their old bike and receive a voucher for the value to be redeemed towards another bike Sharing Wheels has refurbished.

Sharing wheels needs the help of the community to help prepare kids bikes for the upcoming Kids Bike Swap on June 8th. To help join them at one or more of their scheduled work parties. Tools and snack provided, all skill levels of volunteers welcome.

Location: 2525 Broadway, Everett WA 98201 sw-logo-061

Upcoming work party dates:
Thursday 4/10 6-9 pm
Thursday 4/24 6-9 pm
Saturday 5/10 10-3pm
Thursday 5/22 6-9pm
Sunday 6/1 10-3 pm
Wednesday 6/4 6-9 pm

Check out this series of Legomation videos put out by the city of Edmonton Canada. A humorous approach to public education about bicycle lanes in their city. It also confirms what I had already suspected, Canadians are strange! Although these videos do remind me of countless hours I spent as a child making Legomation in my friends basement.

Parkcycle, a social green space on wheels. That’s what John Bela of Rebar group and Till Wolfer of N55 had in mind when the conceived ‘Parkcycle Swarm’. consisting of four small mobile parks, the project explores the possibilities of the public sculpture, while at the same time raising awareness of cycle-power and green space trough a participatory activity. ‘Parkcycle Swarm’ invites city dwellers to pedal the mini park lands throughout the city of Baku. ‘Parkcycle’ has been specially commissioned for PARTICIPATE: Baku Public Art Festival 2013, which continues until September 17th. So if you find yourself in Baku, the capital of Azerbaijan be sure and take one for a spin!
