We happened upon the following video of a father helping his young daughter learn to ride without training wheels awhile ago. We don’t know them personally (she’s not riding one of our bikes), but we wanted to share this with you, anyway. It’s a truly wonderful illustration of that child on a bike experience.
The little girl’s smile when she realizes she’s been riding all on her own for the very first time pretty much explains why we work so hard to make Wheels For Kids succeed.
To Donate Bikes
Ideally, what we are looking for are “gently used” bikes. They may be a bit dirty with a scratch here or there, and the tires may be a bit past their prime, but their parts are all there and things, while they may be a bit cranky, at least work. We can replace tires and chains, brake pads, and handle bar grips, but our goal is to get as many kids riding on their own bikes as possible, so we’d rather spend a day refurbishing several bikes than several days refurbishing one. What we don’t want are bikes with broken, bent or cracked frames (including forks), or anything that’s started to rust through the paint or chrome.
We are continuing to add more drop-off locations throughout the Tucson area. In the meantime, though, we’re more than happy to come pick up any bike(s) you have to donate. Please send us a note if you have any questions or want to let us know you have one or more bikes to donate.
