We have some...frustrating news to share, but we will get through it, with your help. The government has implemented a new tariff on all metal, including bikes, being made in China. This new tax increase (that goes straight to the government) went from 10% to now 25% beginning January 1, 2019. This means each bike is now $125 instead of $100. A bike, lock, and helmet is now $135 instead of $110. So, that being said, our goal to buy all 500 kids from Sanders-Clyde Elementary (@scgatorpride) a new bike is now $67,500 instead is $55,000.
This is a dramatic price increase but we refuse to sit around crying about it (anymore) because there’s nothing we can do and we refuse to let this stop us from spreading the basic Joy of a bike to disadvantaged kids! One of our core values is that we provide NEW, HIGH QUALITY bikes and support a small community business, so we are still adamant to continue our wonderful partnership with @affordabike (who is not profiting at all from this price increase).
That being said, we have SET A DATE for the Sanders-Clyde SURPRISE Bike Reveal!! Mark your calendars: May 30, 2019!!! Please support these disadvantaged kids by donating today!
1 bike= $125
1 helmet= $8
1 lock = $2
What can your family give? A lock for a whole grade? A helmet for a whole classroom? A bike/lock/helmet for a student?❤️
