Optibike to host 2012 Community Cycles Kids Holiday Bike Giveaway

“We are thrilled to host this truly amazing event at Optibike this year.”

December 16, 2012, 9a.m. – 1p.m.
3200 28th Street Boulder, Colorado

It’s a community event from beginning to end!

Throughout the year, Community Cycles takes in 100s of kids’ bikes. Each fall, dozens of volunteer mechanics donate their time to our “work nights” to get bikes ready for the December event.

Local businesses donate the venue, provide snacks and beverages for our volunteers or refreshments for the families that come to the event. Other businesses donate employee community service hours or give matching funds as part of workplace giving.

A hundred volunteers come together on the day of the event to distribute 300 – 400 bikes.
That’s a whole lot of smiles!
