2008: Started in a garage, giving away 250 bikes. Now: 5-6000 bikes per year, and growing.
20,000 bikes given away in the last 6 years.
Free Bikes 4 Kidz is a non-profit organization geared toward helping all kids ride into a happier, healthier childhood by providing bikes to those most in need.
The public donates gently used bikes, we organize thousands of volunteers to clean and refurbish them, and then we give them away to kids in need.
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.
We recycle the equivalent of a 737 airplane in metal and rubber. Each year.
Organize 4,000 volunteers to clean and refurbish bikes.
Every bike receives three touches before given away.
