This weekend, 100 unassembled bicycles will find new life and new homes, thanks to a collaboration between some local bike-centric organizations.

The second annual Cadence Community Bike Build will take place this Sunday, Feb. 28, at First Unitarian Church. The event is co-presented by the Bicycle Coalition of Greater Philadelphia (BCGP) and Advanced Sports International bicycle distribution company, which donated the 100 Fuji, Breezer and SE bikes.

Bikes constructed at the event will be donated to Cadence Youth Cycling, BCGP’s youth program. Fellow nonprofits Neighborhood Bike Works, the Philly Pumptrack and Gearing Up will also receive bikes.

Here’s the thing: BCGP needs humans to assemble all those machines. Area bike mechanics, enthusiasts and community at large are invited to attend and help out — no experience required (though that’s helpful, too). Participants are asked to contribute $10 for Cadence, but they’ll be reimbursed for their time with free burritos and beer. Kids are invited, too.
