Earn a Bike focuses on assisting adults and mature teens in need of reliable transportation who are interested in wellness and learning new skills.

Individuals enrolled in this program volunteer in our community bike shop to learn the skills necessary to rebuild a donated bicycle to suit their needs.  Volunteers must complete approximately 20 hours of service to be eligible for a bike. Volunteers may work at their own pace/schedule when completing the 20 hour requirement. 

Along with the Earn-A-Bike Program, volunteer hours can be used as payment for replacement parts.
