SoPo continues our partnership with Habitat for Humanity. New home owners get a bike safety class, basic bike maintenance class, and their own bike. It’s an awesome partnership that continues.
A minivan packed full of bikes thanks to Veeam Software. Veeam had a team building activity to build kids bikes. 18 kids bikes were built. They then donated the bikes to a deserving organization.
SoPo will look over the bikes and double check the great work that Veeam Software had done. After, the bikes will go to Whitefoord Elementary school to ‘ve given for their bike club.
A special thanks to Veeam Software for giving back to the community. These bikes will go a long way in kids lives.
PS, Veeam Software also donated 18 helmets.
SoPo is super excited to help out 7 Stages’ Youth Creates summer program. Youth Creates is a experiential learning and performance opportunity for teenagers. Students come from across the US and Internationally to attend.

SoPo through our Charity Bikes program provided a classic bike to The Health Initiative’s annual fundraiser, the Garden Party. The 18th running of the Garden Party was held at The Phillip Rush Center this past weekend. We are glad we helped contribute to support The Health Initiative’s mission.
This past Thursday, SoPo continued its long running relationship with the International Rescue Committee. SoPo taught a class on bike safety and bike commuting. SoPo also distributed some bikes to the kids. The class was held at Clarkston High School. The kids were very attentive and asked some very good questions especially about riding to and from school, traffic, lights, etc. The kids also received some helmets with the bikes they received.
One of the kids in the class was Moe Kou who was a former IRC Summer intern at SoPo. I was glad he recognized me. He still knows how to fix bikes. It was great continue our work with the IRC and look forward to next Summers interns.
Bike number 13 is part of the bike donation from our Charity Bikes program to Habitat for Humanity.
The bike was donated to the shop specifically for the Charity Bikes donation to Habitat for Humanity. The bike was repainted from its original color to neon pink.But the bike wasn’t put together. It was donated in pieces with painters tape still on it. After peeling everything off and putting the bike together; all the pieces were there and it’s going to be a great neighborhood cruiser.
Thanks to the person who donated the bike, sorry I forgot who you are.
Bike number 20 is part of the bike donation from our Charity Bikes program to Habitat for Humanity.
The bike donation was set to be picked up and we were still 1 bike short of a full donation. When someone on a group ride list serve offered up their old mountain bike. It needed a new home. So I asked and got it. Everything went together so well. The bike didn’t need much, a seat here, I simplified the single chainring, basic flat pedals, and tires. Nothing major; all simple stuff and finished quickly. The bike was a perfect way to cap off the Habitat for Humanity bike donation. It’s a great bike going to a new habitat homeowner.
Thanks to the Murphy family for the bike and other awesome donations to SoPo.
