Weekly Update: Bike donations; Buid-a-Bike

Posted by Sarthak Prasad on April 11, 2022

All, Rainy and cold kept us slow last week. Made some headway on some builds and received some donations that were aside for our Build-a-Bike program. Interest in Build-a-Bikes seems high--or at least stands out when we don’t have any available.

On Friday, we were able to coordinate with Lael Elementary to donate most of the leftover kids bikes from last winter—15 bikes—despite the rainy weather. They were super appreciative and are interested in future donations of more kids bikes, which is great.

Most of my staff will be gone for the summer, so this week I’ll finalize availability and assess from there with an eye towards setting summer 1 hours.

The numbers:

Visitors: 26
Sales: $551.50

Bikes (refurb): 1 for $120
Memberships: 9 for $270
Tires/tubes: 7 for $46
