Bike Kitchen helps local youth stay active & outside during quarantine
Every year, Bozeman Bike Kitchen organizes a Christmas bike giveaway for kids with great success season after season. It meets many parts of the local cooperative’s mission and gets kids onto bikes.
As Montanans are struggling with the effects of the COVID-19 virus outbreak, the Bike Kitchen has announced it will reopen the kids bike giveaway this Spring and will operate indefinitely to ensure kids have a healthy way to stay active during these uncertain times. Bike Kitchen staff is committed to local children and teens having an outside outlet.
From 10am to noon on Saturday mornings, the Kitchen will have a stock of bicycles free to those impacted by school closures (K through 12) who can benefit from a healthy distraction during this time of uncertainty.
The bikes will be lined up in the communal parking area north of the shop, located at 2104 Industrial Drive. Those who wish to pick up a bike are asked to only take what they need and that they fill out the attached tag with some basic information.
Bozeman Bike Kitchen is a cooperative cycling center dedicated to making the use of bicycles as transportation and fun possible for all members of the Bozeman and Gallatin Valley communtiy. Learn more at www.bozemanbikekitchen.org. •
