Do you remember your first bike? I remember mine, it was white with 24” purple wheels and a purple banana seat. It was not only my freedom to get around, but also my freedom to explore. With this bike I started a love affair that has lasted to this day.
Imagine never having that first bike. For many kids, this is a reality. Help us put a first bike into the hands of 100+ elementary aged children by donating to Bikes for Tykes.
Bingham Cyclery, MTB Enthusiasts of Utah and WomenMTB are coming together to raise money for The Bicycle Collective. Our goal is to raise $10,000 by Dec. 10th. DONATE today to help us reach this goal.
We want 100 or more children to go home with a new bike, a helmet, a lock and a water bottle. These bikes will provide transportation, independence and the pure joy of riding to children who would have otherwise never been able to have such a gift.
If you want to help, any amount from $5 to $500, makes a difference. You can also help by volunteering for the giveaway event on Dec. 10th, to do so, fill out this form and someone will be in touch.
Funds above and beyond what is needed for the Bikes for Tykes giveaway will be used to support a new Bicycle Collective youth program called “Bike School”. From start to finish this program aims to place young people from diverse backgrounds in real bike shop jobs along the Wasatch Front, teach life long job skills and continue to provide a way for youth to earn a bike through volunteerism.
The Bicycle Collective has a proven record of helping in our community through the great love of the bicycle. We are excited to come together to help them help those around us who need it most.
This would not be possible without the support of Bingham Cyclery who has supported this fundraiser form the beginning. Thanks also goes to MTB Enthusiasts of Utah, WomenMTB and Ignite Artistry.
