About Free Bikes 4 Kidz Chicago

Free Bikes 4 Kidz Chicago is a nonprofit organization with the mission of providing kids in the Chicagoland area with bikes so they can live a happier and healthier childhood in the Chicago communities that need it most.

Mission & Purpose

Think about the time you spent on a bike growing up. The feeling of accomplishment when training wheels came off, the way you viewed your community after a ride, and the freedom of travel. Far too often, children in Chicago are unable to enjoy this luxury. We are Free Bikes 4 Kidz Chicago, and we are setting out to change that. Together with your help, we will alter the landscape of impoverished communities by giving access to recycled bicycles to the children that call them home. Through your donations, we refurbish and give bicycles a second life for families across the city. Together let’s change the city one bike at a time.


Our Method

Every year 25 million bikes are sold in the US. One-third of those bikes are 20” wheel-size, or smaller. Since kids grow like weeds, over 8 million bikes are virtually outgrown each year. Endless supply. Sustainability.bikecircle

Our Board of Directors and Staff

Free Bikes 4 Kidz Chicago is driven by a passionate and invested board of directors, advisory committee and staff.

Our Partners

Though the generous help of key partners, FB4K Chicago has gone far, but we still need support in building the foundation to help every kid ride into a more memorable childhood.
