Bike essentials for beginners
Thinking about start biking? Did you just picked up a bike but don’t know what else you need? Fear no more. The folks at Gizmodo put together a list of essentials items and advice for beginners to give an idea.
How to prevent your bike to get stolen?
It happens to everyone at least one: Getting you bikes stolen. It is not fun. It is irritating. It is just wrong. Although there is no 100% safe way to lock your bike, there are ways to deter would be thieves from choosing your bike to be their next target. We found this article “5 Steps to Effective Bike Security” in the BIKE ROOTS blog, to be very helpful. Check out our Useful Links page for bike registration advise.
We are close for the summer in July.

If you want to get involved in the Bike Exchange there are a couple ways of doing so:
- Organize and/or host a bike drive in your community, workplace, church, softball league, or anywhere else. If you’re willing to put the word out to your community, we will provide support for the drive including brochures, fliers, and transportation for the donated bikes back to our warehouse.
- Get involved through volunteering in our shop, located in the warehouse at PRAB’s 90 Jersey Avenue facility. No mechanic experience is necessary and there is a wide variety of volunteer roles. We need all types of volunteers, including cashiers, salespeople, accountants, mechanics, and bike drive coordinators. Check out our Volunteering page for more details.
