Beaches First Street Cycling & B.E.A.M. Bike Building Party
Wednesday, December 12
6:00 PM – till

Sean, Stephanie & Gunner Crichton’s Home
3300 South 1st Street and 33rd Ave South
Jacksonville Beach, FL 32250

(The Orange Water Cooler House)

We will build up bikes in the garage and driveway, so bring your tools, pump and BIKE STAND.

If you have a truck, please bring. We will deliver bikes to B.E.A.M. (Beaches Emergency Assistance Ministries)  as we build a truckload of bikes on Wednesday.

                    Pizza and Beer & Soft Drinks will be provided

If you’re not building a bike, stop by anyway and socialize with your bike friends and enjoy the Christmas Spirit.

If you have a used kid’s bike that’s in good shape, maybe your child has out grown their bike, bring it to the Bike Building Party Wednesday. It needs to be in working riding shape. We DO NOT have the resources or parts to fix the bike.

Thank you to all the BFSC riders who have donated to our Christmas charity project to donate kids’ bicycles to our local needy family organization called B.E.A.M.

We have been very successful in raising a little over $2500 dollars, which allowed Walter & Robert to purchase approximately 35 kids’ bikes with additional helmets and bike locks.

It is not to late to donate, bring your checks or cash Wednesday to the Bike Building Party.  We will forward the donations to B.E.A.M. Or you can mail donations directly to B.E.A.M. 850 Sixth Avenue South, Ste 400 Jacksonville Beach, FL 32250. Please note Beaches First Street Cycling in the  notation line.

Give your cash & check donations to Walter or Robert.
Make checks payable to: Beaches First Street Cycling

Special Thank You to our BFSC Riders for their additional help.
