Business is booming during pandemic for nonprofit bike shop helping everyone get a bicycle

TAMPA, Fla. — “The whole world wants bikes right now!”

It is safe to say Jon Dengler is the hardest-working man in Tampa’s University Mall right now.

The eerily-silent shopping center still hosts at least one bustling storefront: WellBuilt Bikes.

The shop is a nonprofit repurposing donated bikes and helps anyone get wheels, no matter their financial standing.

“I’ve been joking all week that our racks look like the toilet paper aisle!” says Dengler, who has a small dedicated staff helping him.

Business is booming at WellBuilt right now.

People without access to transportation are a big part of the clientele. Dengler says bus riders worried about the coronavirus are coming into the store for a safer alternative.

“And then we have all those people who are stuck in their houses and simply want to get outside for some exercise,” Dengler adds.

WellBuilt offers all bikes for all people.

A 37-year-old Byron man was hospitalized Wednesday morning after his vehicle went airborne during a single vehicle crash on Olmsted County Road 3 Northwest in Kalmar Township. The Olmsted County Sheriff’s Office responded to the crash just before 8 a.m. Wednesday in the 5500 block of County Road 3 Northwest. Capt. Scott Behrns said the pickup was northbound when it drifted into the southbound lanes, went into the west ditch, struck a field drive and went airborne before coming to a rest on its wheels. The driver, Samuel Carlson, was the only person in the vehicle. Deputies noticed signs of impairment when he was taken out of the truck.

SUISUN CITY — One person died Saturday after driving a vehicle down the city’s boat ramp and into the harbor.

The incident happened shortly before 9:30 p.m.
