Bike-A-Palooza @ Boys & Girls Club Blount County Gymnasium
Mar 24 @ 9:30 am – 1:00 pm

TICKET SALES WILL BEGIN EARLY IN MARCH 2018 

What type bike do you need? Bike Elf comes full cycle and gets East Tennessee adults on bicycles with our second Bike-A-Palooza! All proceeds fund Bike Elf’s mission.

Bike Elf has received over 1000 donated bicycles since January 2015. Many of the bicycles that have been donated are awesome bikes, just not awesome bikes for the children we serve. These bikes are too big, they are cool vintage, but not cool to a teen. They are specialty bikes like mountain trail riding, etc. You get the idea.

Here’s how Bike-A-Palooza works:

Commuter, Greenway, Mountain, Vintage and Parts bicycles go on display in our bicycle showroom at the Boys and Girls Club Blount County beginning at 9:30 AM on March 24.  You buy a ticket and the earlier the time slot the more bikes you get to choose from.
