We all know how it is, kids outgrow their bikes in what seems like an instant and you are shopping for the next size. We wanted to spread the word to Bay Area parents about Community Bikes in Santa Rosa as they are currently inundated with kids bikes that need to go now. You can get a barely-used ride at a great price. Read on for the full scoop!

Community Bikes is a reuse and repair training program that takes donated bikes, tunes them up and sells them to parents like you. Because of the pandemic, parents have been donating lots of bikes when they went up in size. Community Bikes currently has an overstock of kids bikes from balance bikes all the way up to 20-inch big kid bikes (and adult sizes, too!).

If these bikes aren’t sold, they have to be donate for scrap to make room for new donations.

Their current stock includes brands like Trek, Schwinn, Navarro, Magna and Specialized. Prices range from $30-120 (with deals to be made!) so you can get a sweet deal on a sweet bike.

The shop is open Wednesday-Sunday, 1-5 p.m.
