FB4K Minneapolis gave away 300 bikes during their first year in 2008. In the last ten years, over 50,000 bikes have rolled through our giveaways and we’re not done yet. The momentum continues to grow, as new regions are launching each year. What started in a garage in Minneapolis has expanded to a not-for-profit that has expanded to eight affiliate locations throughout the U.S.
2021 is the inaugural year for Free Bikes 4 Kidz in San Diego. Bringing together donors, sponsors and volunteers from across the community, we are focused and committed to help as many kids as we can to ride into a happier and healthier childhood. Our goal is to collect 5000 bikes, refurbish them, and distribute them back to kids by the end of the year!
Mission & Purpose
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.
Though the generous help of key partners, FB4K is building the foundation to help every kid ride into a more memorable childhood.
