Get a Spoke Card
Don’t have a spoke card? You can download and print your own 30DOB spoke card here. To be sure it lasts the month, you’ll want to laminate it. Or, stop in and pick up a pre-printed, already-laminated spoke card here at Calhoun Cycle. Starting next week, we’ll have spoke cards available at the front counter. We’ll be taking donations on behalf of #30DOB and Free Bikes 4 Kidz in exchange. The suggested donation per spoke card is $1.00. You can also make a donation directly to Free Bikes 4 Kidz on their website.
Haven’t made the pledge? No problem. We won’t tell! Spoke cards will be available to anyone and everyone who asks while supplies last.
Now in its fifth year, 30 Days of Biking began as a community of individuals right here in Minneapolis who’d made the pledge to ride a bike every day in April. The beauty of #30DOB is in its simplicity. Pledge to ride and share what comes of it. Share in person, share on Twitter (#30daysofbiking), share on Facebook… however works for you. Due to the hard work of local organizers here and elsewhere and to the core of inspiration that started it all, 30 Days of Biking has grown each year since this little movement began.
This year, for the first time, 30 Days of Biking has pledged to give back for each pledge made. In the name of bringing even more people to the joy that is biking, for every 30 people who pledged to bike every day in April, 30DOB will give 1 bike to a kid in need via Free Bikes 4 Kidz.
Like 30DOB, Free Bikes 4 Kidz is Minneapolis-based. They’ve donated 20,000 bicycles to kids in need since 2008. Those kids who receive a bike are kids who would not otherwise be able to afford one. Remember when you received your first bike and how happy you were? That’s what Free Bikes 4 Kidz does, and that’s what we —along with 30DOB, this year’s sponsors, and YOU— can help them do more of.
The partnership with Free Bikes 4 Kidz makes for a very special 5th anniversary for 30DOB and we’re thrilled to be sponsoring their efforts along with so many great local businesses. Pledging closed on April 7 at 6,974 (!), but you can still contribute by making a donation in exchange for a 30DOB spoke card. Hence, we wanted to offer all of you who’ve made the pledge (and those of you who didn’t have a chance) a little incentive to share the 30DOB love.
