globalbike Wipes Donates to Free Bikes 4 Kids


Bicycles are necessary in many parts of the world for transportation. However, bikes also provide a world of opportunity for our smallest inhabitants – children. There are thousands of kids in our country who do not have a bicycle. Free Bikes 4 Kidz takes old bikes, fixes them up and donates them to children in need. To help with the clean up and restoration, globalbike™ Wipes donated product to help restore these bikes to working condition.  The Hand and Tool wipes and Chain Wipes were especially helpful in getting these bikes back in action!

“globalbike wipes were an important part of our day at Free Bikes 4 Kidz.  They did a great job to get the bikes cleaned up and ready for their next owners this holiday season,” says Adam Schmidt, product manager, Quality Bicycle Products.

Free Bikes 4 Kidz is a non-profit organization geared toward helping all kids ride into a happier, healthier childhood by providing bikes to those most in need. In 2008, the charity gave away 300 bikes to children. In 2011, they gave away 5,000. Free Bikes for Kidz needed help fixing the bikes up which is why globalbike Wipes was proud to help this cause.

“Contec started the globalbike Wipes product line to support the use of bicycles in third world countries where they can make a tremendous difference in everyday life, ” says Jack McBride, CEO of Contec, Inc. which produces globalbike Wipes. “Contributing our products to the Bikes 4 Kidz cause is fantastic for us as it completes a global circle by helping provide bikes to help children here in the United States.”

The globalbike Wipes line consists of scented and unscented Body Wipes, Chain Wipes and Hand and Tool Wipes. For more information about globalbike Wipes, click here.
