Rick Anderson’s 12th Annual Bicycle Sale (2020)

Rick Anderson, SOTV member, has an annual bike sale to benefit two Dakota County nonprofit organizations: Kids ‘n Kinship (which matches adult mentors with kids in need) and DARTS (connecting seniors to services and partnerships that improve their quality of life).

Rick and friends clean, refurbish, and tune up the bikes before holding a big sale each May. Rick has raised more than $240,000 in his first 11 sales, and is looking to continue helping the programs he so strongly believes in. Rick refurbished, sold, and/or donated 691 bikes last year, and is looking for even more for his next sale!

If that decent-condition kiddie bike, cruiser, or mountain bike is collecting dust in the corner of the garage, consider donating it.

As the sale gets bigger each year, Rick is seeking additional help from the community: bike maintenance, and a place for bike storage (clean, dry space – basement, warehouse, storage unit). To contact Rick about the sale, visit ricksbikesale.com.

Mark on your schedule the next bike sale:
Saturday, June 27, 2020
9:00 am – 1:00 pm
At Superior Service Center (14580 Glenda Drive in Apple Valley)
