News Tech: A group that has distributed thousands of bicycles over the past five years thinks it can expand even more, but it needs a bigger location to accomplish its objectives.

The company, which has moved between many locations throughout the years, presently operates a 2,500 square foot shop in East Towne Mall where it fixes bicycles but is compelled to keep the majority of its inventory in rented off-site storage.

Bikes 4 Kids Free In order to give out 5,000 bikes annually by 2028, more than doubling its present capacity, Madison has stated that it is looking for a permanent site of up to 20,000 square feet.

A single area would simplify operations and do away with the need to transport bikes between the warehouse and the repair shop on a 16-foot-long trailer.

According to Goforth, the initiative has prevented 77 tonnes of metal and rubber from ending up in landfills and distributed more than $1 million worth of free bikes over the previous five years.

However, FB4K Madison executives believe they could have to choose a smaller permanent site while continuing to lease space in East Towne due to the lack of warehouse space in Dane County. The ideal location for a new facility, according to Goforth, a UW-Madison graduate and former executive director of the Monona East Side Business Alliance, would be adjacent to the Beltline, in the centre of the city, and along a bike route. Additionally, a bigger, permanent facility would stop occasionally rejecting gifts because of a lack of room.

According to Goforth, “our collections will increase up considerably” if we are able to accept all of the gifts. “Our numbers will increase if we can accept bike donations year-round, which we now cannot.”
