Who need bike sharing, Time’s Up has 450 bikes for sale.

Ok, so no bike sharing till next year. There are some other options. Why not get your very own bike?

Time’s Up just got a whole shipment of used Dutch style bikes and they’re rapidly fixing them up for sale.

Here is more about the lot of bikes from Time’s Up:

Times Up! introduces low cost Dutch bikes to its Brooklyn space.

We ordered 450 bikes from Japan that we are recycling and getting on
the streets fast, for the cheapest prices possible. While Bike Share
stutters to a start, we are getting people on their own perfect
commuter bikes at an affordable price.

While Time’s Up! recycle-a-bike program offers all different styles of
bikes, we focused on providing a very practical Dutch-style non-gender
specific recycled bicycle. This single speed bicycle can be ridden in
the rain and includes full fenders, both front and rear, full chain
guard, and in most cases rear rack baskets, and a kick stand. The
upright safe design of a Dutch Bike provides more visibility than
typical bicycles. The introduction of low-cost (just over $100) Dutch
bikes is a way to change the mindset of New Yorkers. Many times in
America, biking is viewed as more of a sport rather than a mode of
transportation. Through the use of more practical and leisurely
designed Dutch Bikes, the American concept of biking can be
transformed from solely sport biking to an enjoyable method for
everyday commuting or enjoying the city’s bike paths and greenways.
Subsequently, bike ridership can spread to various groups of people
and increase non-polluting forms of transportation. This program has
been remarkably successful. We are starting to see more and more Dutch
bikes all over NYC

We’ll be recycling bikes in the back yard of the Brooklyn Space four
days a week every week from now on!

–VOLUNTEER BICYCLE RECYCLING DAYS
Wednesdays, Thursdays, Fridays and Sundays
99 S 6th St, Brooklyn
http://times-up.org/calendar/calendar.php

Wednesdays and Sundays from 4pm-8pm and Thursdays and Fridays from
12noon-6pm, join us for bicycle recycling in the back yard of our
Brooklyn Location. This is a great opportunity to learn basic bike
repair from our mechanics on a one-on-one level, and also to help
Time’s Up! with this hugely important project to get more New Yorkers
on bikes – the best way we know to create a greener, more livable
city. We need people to help recycle bikes, sell bikes, input bike
sales into our database, keep the shop in order, and more! Follow us
on twitter to get the latest schedule changes – we’ll probably be
working even more hours and days than these.

This is a great way to learn bike mechanics skills and get first dibs on a great street-ready bicycle.

Now here is more on the schedule of Time’s Up events:
