BC assists Adopt-A-Family Bikes

Bike Concord is fixing bikes for Adopt-A-Family Bikes in Alamo this Friday, 6pm. If you have any mechanical skills, or even if you don’t but are willing to clean bikes, please come on down. The more people, the more bikes we can get through their pipeline for donation to kids and adults who need them.

225 Suite A, Alamo Plaza, Alamo. It’s a couple doors down from Peet’s Coffee. 6pm this Friday, and we will be back each Friday through Dec 23.

AAFB is a volunteer-run program that repairs donated bicycles during the holiday season for distribution to low-income recipients, including in Concord via Monument Crisis Center. They have been in operation since 2002, but this is the first year Bike Concord has collaborated with AAFB. We hope to work together even more closely once we launch our nonprofit community bike shop in Concord – which could be soon if we raise a lot of funds at Tamale Fest & Bikes on Dec 3.

  1. I am a low income Concord resident , I met you guys at bike to work day this year, do you know a inexpensive place to get your bike fixed, my bike got stolen so I’m borrowing a bike but it needs repairs, this is my main transport to work so I really need to fix it, thanks Michelle travis

    • Hi Michelle – Could you email our Bike Works Committee (bikeworks@bikeconcord.org) and give us more details about what’s wrong with your current bike, along with close-up photos? We might be able to get a volunteer to meet you somewhere or make a house call to fix it if it’s relatively easy. If it’s not, we can talk about your budget constraints and try to find a repair option that works for you.
