Give to the Max Day is Tomorrow, Nov. 12!


Tomorrow, November 12, 2015, is Give to the Max Day in Minnesota and Cycles for Change is raising $10,000 to continue to build an empowered and diverse community of bicyclists.

*Join us at our St. Paul shop (712 University Ave.) from 12-8 p.m. for a special Open Shop! Come get your bike ready for winter, or just stop and say hi!

*Join us at our Minneapolis shop (1915 E. 22nd St.) from 4-8 p.m. for Volunteer Night! Special offer for Minneapolis shop: 20% off regular pricing for all used parts and accessories Nov. 11-12, 2015 when you mention the code phrase “Give to the Max for C4C’s Youth Apprenticeship Program.” (offer does NOT include complete bicycles)

*We will also be participating in Bike Trivia at Fair State Brewing at 7 p.m.! Join us:

Your donation on Give to the Max Day also may help us receive an additional donation of $1,000. Every gift made on Nov. 12 on will be entered into an hourly drawing for a $1,000 Golden Ticket to be awarded to a nonprofit organization. That adds up to 24 opportunities for you to help us receive an extra $1,000! (So, time your donation carefully—many people might not be up at 3 a.m. donating!)

Even more exciting: Two donations made on, one at noon and one at the end of the day, will be randomly selected to receive a $10,000 Super-Sized Golden Ticket! The more gifts we generate on on Nov. 12, the more our chances increase to receive that additional $10,000 donation!

Our goal is to raise $5,000 in these 24 hours for our Youth Apprenticeship and $5,000 for our Bike Library. Find the page to donate here:

Diverse Bicyclists, Diverse Needs: Cycles for Change Community Conversations

NRN and community convo participant

Cycles for Change is always seeking to use information and input from participants and our community to improve our programs and respond more effectively to the needs of our community. Recently, C4C implemented a Community Conversations project, where more than 75 residents from our neighborhood and our programs provided input into the key priorities of our organization. This input is helping inform our decision to grow our youth apprenticeship, expand our program offerings in our community, raise more money, and grow our operation to meet the bicycle and transportation needs of more people in the Twin Cities.

This project was made possible by funding from the Bush Foundation Community Innovation grant.
