Nonprofit bike shop Sharing Wheels has plenty to give
EVERETT — If you’re looking for a new bike for your kid then Sharing Wheels is the place to go.
The new executive director of the nonprofit bike shop, Christy Cowley, says their mission is to keep bikes and people moving. This bike shop relies heavily on volunteers who help to fix up the bikes and keep the shop clean.
The new director herself was a volunteer there for a few months before her current position opened up and she got the appointment.
She recently moved to Washington from California last April and has a background in sports equipment, so the biking environment isn’t new to her.
Sharing Wheels has competitive bike sales so everyone can get one and they even have a low-income program if the prices are a bit much. This shop doesn’t just sell bikes but they also make people self-sufficient.
This shop has every different kind of bike. Cowley also said they have so many bikes, they have a whole other storage room for them.
It’s a hidden gem behind Henry’s Donuts on Broadway. Access is in the alley. They are always looking for volunteers and currently looking to hire a shop manager.
The shop may seem new to some but it’s been around since 2002, and originated in the first owner’s garage. The bikes are between $50 and $1,000 if you’re looking to buy one.
You can also donate any old bikes you have to them for free, although they do ask for a $5 donation for each bike. The shop is full of beautiful looking bikes and hard-working volunteers.
Be sure to check them out online or stop in and say hello to Sharing Wheels at 2531 Broadway.
