Now through June 19, Bike Saviours, the non-profit bicycle collective (founded in 2007) located at 601 University Drive, is auctioning off three used road bikes. According to the co-op, each pimp ride has complete gear and brake systems. They also state that the bikes may take some maintenance work, but here's a bonus: the collective, which specializes in bicycle education, will teach you the know-how for free.
Learning stuff rocks.
Back in March, Bike Saviours - with the help of Rusty Spoke, Tempe Bicycle Action Group, and the Tempe and Paradise Valley REI stores - presented a used bike donation drive to the public. The shindig went so well that the co-op decided to hold this current auction that culminates with a Summer Solstice bike ride and barbecue on Saturday, June 19.
To bid, show up at the shop. Hang out for a while because the folks there are way laid back and friendly.
