What. A. Year.
Like many local businesses, BICAS Community Bike Shop has been working exceptionally hard this year to figure out how to continue to provide “essential services” to the community during the COVID19 pandemic. Tucson, along with the rest of the country, has experienced a boom in bicycle ridership due to people needing to save money on gas, get to work, transport groceries, find an alternative to riding crowded public transit, or to maintain their mental and physical health amidst the crisis. As Tucson’s only bicycle nonprofit resource, we knew we had to respond in kind, even though doing so meant flipping our entire service model on its head. Although we desperately miss wrenching alongside you all, we are extremely proud that we were able to shift gears so quickly, impactfully, and safely, allowing us to offer a variety of low-to-no cost COVID-safe services to the Tucson community in 2020, including:
- Sliding-scale bicycle repair
- Refurbished bicycle sales
- “Essential Bicycles” ($0 bikes for those who need them most)
- Affordable new and used parts
- Virtual Youth Earn-a-Bike class
- Online sales via Etsy & Ebay
- A Yard Sale
- An online “Mini” Art Auction
Your tax-deductible end-of-year donation ensures that BICAS will be able to hit the ground running again in 2021, continuing to do what we do best: helping people get where they need to go. Click here to donate now!
Did you know that BICAS qualifies for the AZ charitable tax credit? That means residents of Arizona can donate up to $400 and receive that money back in the form of a tax credit. This unique program essentially allows you to choose where your state taxes go! Won’t you consider choosing us?
We’d like to tip our helmets in deepest gratitude to all those whose steadfast support has helped us weather this difficult and unprecedented year — our donors, our board members, and our customers. We couldn’t have done it without your generosity and encouragement. We hope to see you all soon, as we look ahead to a new year, and hopefully, a new world.
