Boulder, Colorado Community Cycles will host its first Holiday Bike Swap, Giveaway, and Collection Drive at the Boulder Outlook Hotel on December 7, 8 and 9. They’ll collect child and adult bikes, fix them up, and open the doors for children to come in a swap out their bikes for better fitting ones. Children without bikes are welcome to pick out a bike for themselves. Community Cycles is asking for a $10 for each bike dropped off and picked up, but the donation is not required.

In nearby Longmont, Colorado, High Gear Cyclery is once again collecting and fixing bicycles for the St. Vrain Community Council’s Holiday Basket program. Santa’s elves will repair the donated bikes at High Gear’s expense. The bikes most needed are kid-sized: ones with 12, 16, 20, or 24 inch wheels. Adult-sized mountain bikes are also welcomed. Santa already has enough 10 speed and 3 speed bikes, so those are not needed.
