From Jake @ Nice Ride MN:

Good Wheel To All And To All A Good Bike!

'Tis the season of giving, and we'd like you to help us give hundreds of free bikes to kids this holiday season.

Come on down to the Midtown Bike Center anytime we’re open and fix up some bikes to give to kids in your community. We need to kick out about 200 more bikes by December 10th in order to meet our goal of 350 bikes to give away.

Our mission is to give a bike to every kid who needs one. Every kid needs a bike!

Hours: (anytime the Midtown Bike Center is open!)

MON-FRI 6:30 AM - 7:00 PM

SATURDAY 9:00 AM - 5:00 PM

SUNDAY 9:00 AM - 5:00 PM

*Volunteer days run through Friday, December 10th*

Location: ?The Freewheel Midtown Bike Center?2834 10th Avenue South?Minneapolis.?Get Directions

We need three categories of staff:

1. Wrenches - someone who knows their way around fixing a bike. Brakes, chains, gears, shifters, and the likes.

2. Assistant Wrenches - check and replace tires and tubes, check pressures, final cleaning of bikes, etc.

3. Hands - wash bikes with power washer, move them from place to place, minor support (Please Bring Towels).

Groups: ?If you have a large group of co-workers, friends, neighbors or strangers that can come assist, please contact Jake Quarstad at



P.S. Bring some tunes and plug into our speakers as your wrench!
