UPDATE: West Seattle teen’s bicycle-donation drive

(WSB photos)

12:04 PM: Got a bike, parts, and/or accessories you don’t need any more? Bring them to the lot behind Hope Lutheran (42nd/Oregon in The Junction) by 1 pm for the Bike Works drive that Spencer Mueller is hosting!

40+ bikes so far.

12:29 PM: Added photos. Spencer attends school and church at Hope Lutheran and explained that a service project is required as part of confirmation – he’s “always been passionate about bicycling” and thought about trail-building but decided to do this instead, so Bike Works could fix up donated bicycles and get them to people in need. And thanks to generous WSB readers – Spencer’s dad told us he’s been asking donors how they heard about it, and most cited WSB.

    Thank you for doing this bike drive! We just dropped off two. Our daughters loved them but now they’re teens. Hope the new owners get as much fun from them as our girls did.

    Are you taking bikes still or is this a one-day event? Thanks!

    And just to explain Bike Works a bit more, the youth recipients typically “earn” their bikes by learning how to refurbish and repair some of these bikes in classes and 1:1 mentoring. It’s a great Central Seattle-based non-profit that also takes cash and parts donations.

    I learned about this last week on the blog! I had planned to take a bike and a few parts over to Bike Works the last few months but that didn’t happen. Thanks, Spencer, for saving me the trip and leading such a cool project.

Sorry, comment time is over.
