Fort Collins Bike Co-op and REI host Bike Week Bike Drive on June 19th!

The Fort Collins Bike Co-op, a 501c3 organization, in conjunction with REI, is hosting a Bike Week Bike Drive in Fort Collins. The event will accept donated bikes of any kind to benefit kids in need, as well as the Earn–a-Bike and Ghana Bikes programs at the Co-op. There is a specific need for youth bikes.

The main event will take place on Saturday, June 19th from 10-2pm at REI, 4025 S. College Ave.

For every bike donated on the 19th during the above times, REI will give donators a free discount coupon! REI will also be hosting a “Get Your Bike Ready to Ride” workshop during the event. They'll answer all your bike commute questions, help you plan your best route for Bike to Work Day (June 23rd), and show you how to dress for your ride and still look good when you get there.

Free bike maps, water bottles, and other cycling prizes will be given. While they are happy to make basic adjustments and give advice as part of their free basic check-up, they will refer you to their expert bike shop for full tune-ups and major work.

Can’t make it on the 19th? Donated bikes will be accepted all week long during Bike Week at REI and the Bike Co-op, during their respective business hours. (Coupons will only be given for donated bikes on the 19th).

The Fort Collins Bike Co-op is located at 331 N. College Ave and is open on Sunday from 12-6pm and Wednesday and Friday from 2-5pm. REI is open M-F 10-9pm, Sat 9-8pm and Sunday 10-6pm. Any donated bikes or bike parts that cannot be used will be recycled if possible.
