August 30 – Carhartt Store Bike Drive & Bike Check-up


On Saturday, August 30, Working Bikes will host a bike check-up and bike drive at the Carhartt outerwear/workwear store in Wicker Park. See steps below to participate.

Step 1: Bring a bike, bike gear or parts, or a suggested donation of $10 to support Working Bikes’ bike donation, education, and volunteer programs here in Chicago.

Step 2: Bring a bike for a brief safety check, which could include seat adjustments, inflating tires, cleaning the chain, and checking brakes as needed.

Step 3: Chat with a Working Bikes volunteer to learn about our mission to improve mobility in underserved communities and divert waste (unwanted bikes!) from landfills. Ask about bike safety and maintenance tips, too.

Step 4: Leave happy!

Carhartt is located at 1518 N. Milwaukee Ave. in Chicago. Stop on by between 12-3pm to enjoy the check-up and to drop off your donation.
