Bike Workshops are a non-profit organization that provide bikes and bike repairs for those who need them. The organization is looking for bike and parts donations and well as those who can help repair bikes. Volunteers work two days a week fixing bikes and sorting donations.
The workshop outgrew their previous space in downtown Fargo and moved Nov. 1 a few blocks down First Avenue North to a larger building. The slower winter months will be spent fixing up the new space. Volunteers are needed for painting, building, plumbing and electric work.
The organization continues their work through the winter months holding winter bike-riding classes, in which volunteers with teach winter safety techniques and illustrate how bikers can make their own studded snow tires.
