A portion of the evening’s Ticket Sales go to Free Ride, a collective dedicated to recycling bicycles, offering mechanical education, and promoting bicycling by helping people of all ages and backgrounds obtain, maintain, and repair bicycles.

Free Ride aims to operate without a hierarchy and to be respectful of all people. It is very important that all people who come to the shop are respected and encouraged to learn, regardless of their experience level or background. As a collective, Free Ride is supported and operated by the community of people who use it. All participants can benefit from Free Ride in a variety of ways, and in return should give back to the Free Ride community in some way.
