Cycling Tip

The good riding season has begun. It's an opportune time to organize your Fix-A-Flat kit. Here are some things to look for:
  • Make sure CO2 cartridges are unused or that you have a pump.
  • Make sure your spare tube is still holding air, and carry some patches, just in case.
  • Re-assess the tools you carry, make any updates or improvements, and make sure you have what you need. 

Matching Gifts


We are grateful for all our donors who support special programs like our Kids’ Holiday Bike Giveaway and our Earn-A-Bike program. Did you know that some employers match employees’ donations to non-profit organizations? If your employer does, you can double your support, double the goodness and increase your effectiveness. Check here to see if you can get in on the fun.
