- BIKES FOR
EMERALD YOUTH -



Matt Deen of Emerald Youth at Laurel Church of Christ (corner of Kingston Pike & Cherokee Trail) is pictured picking up bikes he plans on using in the chruch's ministry. The church is located right on top of the Third Creek Greenway. He wanted some bikes to take advantage of this. Matt is very excited about the Greenway and the local community behind the church on Sutherland.

Like most non-profit leaders, Matt needed a variety of reliable bikes at the lowest possible cost. Kickstand fixed up bikes for him for free. That leaves his money free for other projects. He can also trade out bikes he has with others Kickstand has in stock once he has a better understanding of the more popular sizes.

If your non-profit needs bikes, write us at kickstandknoxville@gmail.com and we'll be glad to help. We also have programs to teach children and adults to ride bikes in an hour or less! Kickstand can also arrange safety and bike maintenance programs for your group.





- Tennessee Moutain Laurel Festival -



Kickstand has donated two very nice bikes that will be given away at the festival. One is a smaller Trek mountain bike just great for teens or smaller adults. The other is an adult Schwinn commuter bike with skinny tires, but mountain bike gearing and handlebars. A fast get-around-town machine.

There will be all sorts of East Tennessee events including quilting, music, and art. Several active events are scheduled including a 5K and several bike rides. Details here!
