A bit about Trips for Kids…

Trips for Kids Birmingham has recently opened a bike ReCyclery or thrift shop to sell used bikes, equipment and clothing. Sales from the ReCylcery will support the Ride Program, the Earn a Bike Program and make Trips for Kids Birmingham sustainable for the future, without depending solely  on grants and donations. The Earn a Bike Program will allow kids to come in and take classes on safety, maintenance and repair, work in the shop and clock community service hours. With enough credits, they will earn a bike and will know to wear a helmet, how to change a tire and will hopefully secure the bike since they have worked to earn it. Our location is located in the State Traditions warehouse at 3625 1st Ave South. We hope to serve Avondale, Woodlawn, East Lake, Irondale and Birmingham with the Earn a Bike program and all of metro Birmingham with the thrift shop. We welcome all donations and are looking for “dusty not rusty” bikes in basements and garages. Since we are a 501c3, all donations are tax deductible. Please call 205 908 0564 for hours, directions or donation pickups.
