Bucks for Bikes: NBW to host bike sales Saturdays in June

Neighborhood Bike Works is cleaning out their basement of inventory, meaning there are a LOT of donated bicycles up for grabs! The nonprofit, which engages urban youth in bicycling education, will host bike sales throughout June to raise money for their young members to participate in summer camp sessions. 

The folks at NBW understand that, due to massive cuts in State and Federal budgets, many young Philadelphians are unable to attend after school or summer programs, leaving them bored at home. To solve this conundrum, NBW needs to raise money to pay for extra camp sessions, but first they need the necessary funds to hire older youth to work at the camps as instructors. Therefore, they need you to fork over some of your hard-earned funds for the sake of Philly’s cycling community.

Sales will be held every Saturday in June at 3916 Locust Walk, by St. Mary’s Church on University of Pennsylvania’s campus.   

A kick-off preview sale will take place this Saturday, June 4th from 3-6 p.m., followed by the Big Sale on June 11th, held in conjunction with West Philly Grows Again from 9:30 a.m. – 2:30 p.m.

Bikes will be sold for as low as $20, along with used tires and tubes at bargain rates – this is your chance to get back in the biking saddle, or pick-up a good project bike to keep you busy this summer! All the bikes will be sold as is…meaning you may have to break out the tool-box before your new baby is ready to hit the road.
