    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.

      Hmm it seems like your website ate my first comment
      (it was extremely long) so I guess I’ll just sum it up what I submitted
      and say, I’m thoroughly enjoying your blog.
      I too am an aspiring blog blogger but I’m still new to the
      whole thing. Do you have any points for rookie blog
      writers? I’d really appreciate it.

      This ultimate guide to becoming an Potty training expert.
      There are simply steps that you can take before you start that leans on both
      imitation and the curiosity that your child naturally possesses in abundance.
      If there is a lot of stress or chaos going on in your home, don’t try the 3
      day method of potty training.

      What you may not know is the amount of education and strict standards carpenters must qualify for to be considered as professionals,
      especially in Canada. Building a shed on your own is beneficial in many ways.
      I prefer to use particle board because it is less expensive than plywood and works just as well.

      Hello! I understand this is sort of off-topic but I had to ask.
      Does building a well-established blog such as yours
      take a massive amount work? I’m brand new to writing a blog
      however I do write in my diary every day. I’d like to start a
      blog so I will be able to share my own experience
      and feelings online. Please let me know if you have any kind of ideas or tips for
      brand new aspiring blog owners. Thankyou!
