By Glen Rumbaugh, BikeWalkKC Education Operations Coordinator
Have you ever donated a bike to BikeWalkKC and wondered what happened to it?
It starts in our shop where we clean and check each bike. Once ready, it’s off to one of our Earn-a-Bike Classes.
During an Earn-a-Bike class, students are taught how to maintain and repair bikes.
Above, one our instructors, Dave, is showing the kids at the Clay/Platte Montessori school how to make adjustments to the rear brake.
Both boys and girls enjoy “wrenching” on bikes!
Each student who participates gets a bike of their own. Do you see the bike you donated?
After all the hard work it’s time for fun: riding together!
We thank each of you who have donated to our Earn-a-Bike programs!
If you have a bike you’d like to donate please contact us at 816-205-7056 or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Click here to learn more about our Education programs.
