Colorado Springs Bike Drive
Bishops North Academy has partnered up with Kids on Bikes for a fundraiser on November 18th. For this coming edition of Bishops’ “Give Back Monday“, the shop will be donating 20% from all services to to help raise the importance of youth bike awareness. Additionally, the shop will serve as a bike donation satellite for Kids on Bikes for the day.
Kids on Bikes mission is “to inspire and empower all kids to lead healthy, active and happy lives through bicyling”. This means that the organization offers bike libraries, puts on summer bike camps and provides bicycling education to youth.
UPDATE! The shop was able to raise $100 to be donated directly to Kids on Bike and a client receiving a service was so moved by the fundraiser that he purchased a bike to donate as well!

Additionally, they host a variety of classes in mechanics and safety. They’re open 7 days a week at 1026 S. Tejon Street, Colorado Springs.
