    Kids Bikes??

    Do you have a children's bike that you do not need? Ride for Reading is partnering with the Blue Monarch women's shelter to get community bicycles for the children at the shelter. We are looking to collect 6-10 bikes that will be delivered to the shelter prior to Christams. The bikes will stay at the shelter and will be used by many children. If you can help, email me at mathewportell@rideforreading.org or call 378-READ! We will also be donating a children's library for the shelter!

    Here is a video on the program.

    Matthew,

    I believe I have one, or, rather my daughter has one. I'll have to get her ok on it, but it doesn't fit her and she'll like the idea of helping other kids get a new bike.

    When do you need it by?

    Any bike around Coop or Scraffy's size or smaller would work I think!

    Actually I really wanted to know how big is too big for a kids bike.
    I have one Paddle gave me that belonged to his wife.
    It would more likely be for a bigger kid though.

    I do ride... just not lately.

    Sorry Big P. I haven't had the chance to give you a hard time so I have to take every chance that I can. I am sure it would work. Their are all ages of kids at the Blue Monarch. We will take whatever you have. Thanks man!
