Old Spokes Home is going the extra mile to give others a ride.
The Burlington bike shop has specials on spring tune-ups through March 14th.
Old Spokes Home refurbishes about 500 bikes a year.
Much of their sales go towards subsidizing bikes and repairs for low-income Vermonters.
This season the shop is helping people afford bikes and teach them people how to repair them with workshops.
“The workshops better enable people to take care of their own bikes if they want to. Often times they don’t want to have someone else tune their bike, they want to be able to do it themselves,” says Old Spokes Home Mechanic, Kehoe. “We feel like we get to enable and empower people to work on their own bikes.”
Old Spokes Home on North Winooski Ave takes in used bike donations all year round.
