BIG MOVE DAY -- October 6th --This is where is all gets started!  We will be moving all the bikes from Earnhardt locations from our drive with ABC15 to the workshop.  We could use a lot of help here as we not only move them, but organize by size and type!  Please sign up by clicking the volunteer registration above.  If you have a truck and/or trailer, let us know as well.  We will let you know the best place we will need you!

WORKSHOP LOCATION --  Metrocenter Mall.  9617 N. Metro Parkway W. (I-17 & Peoria).  We are inside the mall in a traditional retail store.  We are in the Northwest Corner of the mall … look for the "Blue Entrance".  There should be directional signed for Recycle Your Bicycle there.

If you know your way around a wrench (and thus a bike) and can't make it on Saturday or want to help a little extra, we are holding special nights where we will just work on light to heavy mechanical projects.  To qualify, you must have your own bike stand (or willing to work on the floor) and tools or at a minimum, be good at tires and tubes! To sign up, please contact Diane Low (see above for contact details).
