Pedals2People’s first annual “Santa Helps Bring Bikes on a Bike to Kids for Christmas”
Winter at the shop can be surprising (apparently the arctic temperatures brings riders to the shop!), recharging, inspiring, and sometimes cold. Winter usually brings about a bit of a lull, and after a few weeks of organizing parts, cleaning the shop, and missing some familiar and not-yet-familiar faces, we get antsy.
This idea is the result of this antsy-ness.
Vision: Pedals volunteers hauling a huge trailer of kid’s bikes throughout Spokane. One volunteer, dressed as Santa, knocks on door, a kid opens it, Santa gives him/her a bicycle and rides off to deliver another.
Things we have at this point:
A 7-foot bicycle trailer
A few kid bicycles
A date and time: December 21, delivery time between 10am and 2pm.
What we need to make this a reality:
Maybe a few more kid bikes? (Especially smaller ones). If you have a bike to donate, please drop it off at the shop this weekend so we can get it tuned up to make a kid’s Winter Solstice! Shop hours are Friday, Saturday, and Sunday 1pm-6pm.
Help tuning up kid bikes this weekend.
KIDS TO GIVE THESE BIKES TO!
We’re going to do our best to get everyone we can a bike. There are a few caveats though.
1. We have a limited number of bikes in a limited number of sizes.
2. We’re going to be delivering bicycles on bicycles in mid-December in Spokane, so safety and distance are both on our minds. We’re not setting definite boundaries for where we’ll deliver, but central-ish areas with less-severe topography will be our preference.
IF YOU KNOW A KID WHO WANTS/NEEDS A BICYCLE:
Please email Erik at email@example.com with the following information as soon as possible:
1. Kid’s name
2. Boy or girl bike
3. Age and height (or a rough estimate so we can size close-ish)
5. Contact phone number (so we can arrange a drop-off time for December 21
