Humble Sons Bike Build
What: Help build 1,000 bikes!
When: Mon, Aug 3, 3pm-9pm
Where: The Church at BattleCreek in BA
Why: So 1,000 kids in the Tulsa Area can share our passion for the pedal!
Come help us build 1,000 bikes to be distributed through 20 different Tulsa area agencies and five Tulsa elementary schools!
You need not be a mechanic; minimal skills are required and there will be lots of jobs other than actually assembling bicycles.
Contact Mike Schooling at firstname.lastname@example.org and let him know which of two shifts you'll be able to attend; one from 3pm to 6pm and a second from 6pm until 9pm (or until all the bikes are done!). Why not work both shifts and get a meal for free in between?!
Those who remember the Tough Kids bike builds of the past can attest to the fun and good feelings that flow from the collective work of cyclists joining to assemble bikes for kids.
The Humble Sons slogan says it all ...
We don't make bikes, we build smiles!
