Welcome to the FB4K Detroit bike application page! We’ve wrapped up our 2021 season and are busy planning for autumn of 2022.
If you’re a non-profit organization (church group, neighborhood group or school), you can apply to receive bikes on behalf of the community you serve. We’ll begin accepting applications for our 2022 season in September, 2022.
Once we receive your application we’ll review it and contact you if we have any questions or need any clarifications. Note that because you apply for bikes does not mean that your organization will automatically receive bikes from us – we need to determine how many bikes we have available to give away and weigh that against how many organizations are applying for bikes, and we work on a first-come, first-served basis. You will hear from our Bike Recipient Coordinator either way within a few weeks of your application.
There are a lot of kids who need bikes. We’re pedaling as fast as we can to fix that. We give our bikes away through a network of community organizations, churches and schools. These partner organizations help us put tires on the ground.
Unfortunately, we cannot give bikes directly to individual families and we only give bikes to kids under 18 years of age.
