We also have two special events. First is our final swap of the season at LaCrosse, WI on Saturday, March 3. If you are in the area, come to the LaCrosse swap at Logan Middle School between 10 AM and 2 PM. They always have some great deals, including closeouts and technical clothing samples from Team Borah. You won’t find better prices anywhere on new jerseys, shorts, tights, and jackets, all first quality clothing at thrift store prices. What’s not to love? We also will have the best of MMRB at our booth.
Our other special event is our first-ever pop-up sale at Zion Lutheran Church. This is scheduled for Saturday, March 24 and no bicycle will be priced over $100!! We also will offer free minor repairs on a walk-in, first come first serve basis. Pastor John always hosts fun events, and we’re sure that there will be some fun activities in addition to our sale. Anyone wishing to help us with this sale or with the repairs should contact us at 651-641-1037 to volunteer.
We are gearing up for spring. One issue we have is that all our garages are stuffed to the max with bicycles, and we are getting calls from our city partners that they have bicycles waiting for pickup at the recycling centers. We don’t know where we will put them. However, we do know that we will be offering a really huge sale on almost everything we have at MMRB just as soon as the weather cooperates.
If you know how to repair bicycles, we can always use your help. Just stop by the shop any time that we are open and Mr. Michael will find you a bicycle to repair. If you don’t know how to repair bicycles but still want to volunteer, we have parts that need sorting and plenty of things that need cleaning. Whatever your talents, we’re sure we can find you a way to contribute to our mission of giving bicycles to people in need.
As always, a huge thanks to our faithful volunteers. There is no way we could do everything that we do without them. We hope you will consider joining them. Hope to see you soon at the shop.
