Here's a customize-able flier you can use to advertise your bike drive.

Sponsor a bike ride

Community Bike Works schedules regular Saturday bikes rides each spring and summer—more than a dozen each year. 

The sponsor of a bike ride--either an individual or a company--provides snacks and beverages for the bike ride attendees at an agreed upon location and time. We generally meet at Community Bike Works at 10 am and return by 2 pm. It's a great opportunity for your company to make a real difference while getting to know the young people in our community! 

This opportunity will be available once we're able to ride together safely again.

Files coming soon.
