2020 is a very different year.
We are trying to match requests for essential workers and kids. While this is not our typical method of distribution, we are making some adjustments to support essential workers and kids who, during this time of uncertainty, can use bikes for transportation, as well as to fortify their physical and mental health. As of June 30, 2020, we are no longer taking applications for Essential Workers requesting bikes. We’re focusing on our mission of getting more bikes to more kids.
As of August 7, 2020, we are no longer taking applications for any individuals to receive bikes. Our request list is longer than the inventory of bikes list! If you have applied for a bike, you will be notified once we can fulfill the request.
To receive a bike still this year, partner with your school, community-based organization, or faith-based organization. Have your partner apply for bikes on your behalf.
We will do everything we can to fulfill these requests in a safe manner that will protect recipients, volunteers, and staff.
Please NOTE: We typically cannot give bikes directly to individual families. This is an exception that we were offering specifically during the pandemic.
