Ring the Bells: Build-A-Bike Holiday Lunches Are Back!

 

Join woom bikes USA, The Austin Beer Garden Company, and the Ghisallo Cycling Initiative again this year in supporting the “Hell Yes! Build-a-Bike Holiday Lunches.” Groups of friends, co-workers, and other awesome people team up together to sponsor fun, feel-good bike-building events that help local kids learn to ride and also to explore and connect with their communities by bike. Last year this special program built and donated more than 50 woom bikes to the Ghisallo Cycling Initiative.

woom is dedicated to helping kids throughout North America love to ride, and we’re especially proud to be a part of efforts in our local community of Austin, Texas. woom is matching each “Hell Yes!” bike-build with a $150-$200 in-kind donation, and for each bike that’s built, woom will also donate an additional bike to Ghisallo’s Bike Start program.

What you’re supporting: The Ghisallo Cycling Initiative has served more than 35,000 Austin-area youth participants since 2013. This holiday bike-build program helps support Ghisallo’s Bike Start and Bike Club programs and also helps to replace aging bikes in their high-volume Bicycle Skills Challenge Program fleet.
