Community Involvement

We feel that it is important to do our part in giving back to the community.  We have a couple programs in place that help us do so.   One way is thru our Jr Mechanics program.  We invite kids aged 6-16 to join our class which meets once and week for 4-8 weeks.  Here the students learn about basic bike operation and mechanics.  During the class they work on bikes that have been donated to us.  By the end of the class the bike will have been restored and at that point the bike is donated to the Glen Ed Pantry.  From time to time we host different Boy Scout Troops and help them with their bicycle achievement class.  We also hold our annual Gobblers and Gears ride.  This is a ride that takes place in November, collecting non-perishable items to be donated to the Glen Ed Pantry.  We have worked with the Down Syndrome Association of Greater St. Louis to size members on bikes for the camp that is held in June in Glen Carbon. We also are a sponsor of the Death Row Velo Cycling Team, and have been sponsors for youth baseball teams.
