    From horses to bicycles: Wilmington’s old stables find a new purpose

    It used to be the City of Wilmington’s old stables. Now 1500 N. Walnut Street will be the new location of Wilmington’s Urban Bike Project (UBP).

    The Urban Bike Project (UBP) has served Wilmington for the last six years from 1908 N. Market Street. By providing a means for the public to become self-sufficient in bicycle maintenance, UBP has promoted cycling as a safe, practical and cost-effective mode of transportation.

    UBP’s Free Bike Program provides refurbished bicycles to people who don’t have a bike. Youth Earn-A-Bike is taught in schools and rewards program graduates with a free bike. And an Open Shop program offers folks the opportunity to use high-quality tools to make their own bike repairs with the assistance of UBP’s staff and dedicated volunteers.

    To celebrate their new location, Urban Bike Project will hold a Grand Reopening Open House on January 10 (this Friday from 5 to 9PM) at 1500 N. Walnut Street.

    To learn more about the Urban Bike Project, visit www.urbanbikeproject.com, email info@urbanbikeproject.com or contact Gary Camp at (302) 363-6946.

      When you build a list, you build “squeeze pages,”
      or opt-in pages, offering potential customers or clients a place on your email list

      ebooks, special reports, white papers, online courses, and
      the like.
