Volunteering and Our Local Community
We love supporting our local community both on and off the bike. We have had the great opportunity to work with the following charity rides and events, local school and youth programs and teams with the goal of enabling people to be healthier and to create a better world via the bicycle. Check it out, we are sure proud and in awe of this work and we hope you are inspired by it as well.
The Robert and Wilma Burbach Bike Foundation is a 501(c) (3) tax exempt non-profit organization created in June 2011. RWBBF operates under the name Bikes4Kids. RWBBF collects and refurbishes used serviceable bicycles to redistribute to kids and people in need. Each bicycle is given away free of charge with safety and maintenance instructions, a helmet and a lock. Currently, the Foundation's cost of giving away a bicycle is $18.70 per bike. RWBBF is an all volunteerorganization of very dedicated mostly retired people.
Trailhead Cycling is a collection site for Bikes4Kids. Since 2011 we have collected over 5,000 bicycles and help to refurbish and/or funded the refurbishing of these bicycles. Drop off your donation during store hours, and please consider a $10 donation per bike to help cover the cost of refurbishing. And; THANK YOU!
