Bikes for Kids is a non profit program that started in 2000 with a goal to refurbish donated bikes and give them to kids that don’t have bikes. This effort continues but has expanded to include providing adult bikes through organizations in the community that are working with the homeless and adult populations needing bicycles for transportation.
The program is sponsored by the Marine View Presbyterian Church in NE Tacoma.
Does Your Bike Need Some TLC???
As a way to say thanks for supporting us, the group at Bikes for Kids (BFK) is offering any member from the Wheelmen, an opportunity to tune up or fix their own bike at our shop with the guidance and assistance of one of our mechanically inclined volunteers.
We can schedule a time to use our facility located on Dash Point Road in the Brown's Point area of Tacoma. Schedule an hour for each bike on a Saturday or on a prearranged evening. We will supply the place, tools, repair stands and some basic support along with some basic repair parts like shift/ brake cables, lubricants, miscellaneous screws, etc.. The bike owners must supply items that need to be repaired or replaced, i.e.: brake pads, seats, tires, chains, cassettes, etc.
