Pedaling Philanthropy

We are grateful for the incredible support of over 6,000 individuals who volunteered their time over the last five years to help us clean and repair 10,350 bikes to give away to kids in our community. We’re hard at work this season with the help of well over 1,000 volunteers refurbishing over 2,000 bikes to give to kids before the holidays. 

If you would like to volunteer on our Bike Giveaway Days, Dec. 9 and 10, please click on the button below:
