It’s All About Community.

The Spokesgroup has helped thousands of citizens make a connection with thousands of children and their families.

It IS all about community…about giving something back.  We invite you to participate.

Ultimately, it is YOU who receives the greatest reward.

Warm Greetings,

2020 was an unusual year to say the least.  Already 2021 has its challenges for The Spokes Group.  Average bike and helmet costs and freight costs are up.  Demand for bikes is huge (check the depleted bike section at your nearest Walmart) and many more families are hurting this holiday. 

In 2021 our traditional supplier, Huffy Bikes, was unable to provide bikes.  For the new supplier, we have had delays and some of the orders didn’t deliver on time.  

But some things never change: WE HAVE A GREAT GROUP OF SUPPORTERS!  The spirit of Christmas overcomes viruses and politics.  Kids and bikes are undefeated!! 

Thank you in advance.
