Do you have a used bike just sitting around that you would like to donate? Please bring it to Kickstand Culture on Saturday October 26 between 11 AM and 4 PM. We will accept it no matter it's condition and as a thanks we will give you a coupon* good for 20% any single item!
Kickstand Culture will be transporting all the collected bicycles and giving them to GoBike Buffalo for their Recycle-A-Bicycle Program.
Recycle-A-Bicycle is an educational program for children of all ages that encourages hands-on problem-solving skills; understanding of working with tools; and identification of bicycle parts, mechanics, and functionality. Most importantly, problem-solving skills learned through building a bike will be carried beyond the classroom and into their entire lives.
Students receive a donated bicycle from GoBike Buffalo's community workshop and strip it down, part-by-part. With an instructor's help, they reassemble the bike, making modifications as they go. Students learn bicycle mechanics as they overhaul wheels, bottom brackets, and headsets, take apart chains, and remove and repair brakes and cables—then build it all back up again.
With patience, group participation, and hard work, the students earn the bicycle they built through determination, teamwork, and encouragement of one another, gaining a sense of pride and self-accomplishment.
The students also learn rules of the road, road safety, riding etiquette, hand signals, and how to plan to travel from place to place on two wheels via bike paths and bicycle infrastructure with a final group ride around their surrounding neighborhoods and local parks. Graduating with a certificate of completion, they receive a set of lights, a lock, and helmet, and are welcome to bike home in a group along with their instructor to gain the experience and fun of independence, travel, and freedom on a bicycle they have built themselves!
