To date, over 250 bikes have found new owners and created thousands more smiles. 

Our Adopt-A-Bike program continues to grow. We transform used bikes into transportation to kids and families throughout Los Angeles. We know kids need more exercise, adults need to get to work and families need to recreate together. Bikes are great solutions!

Used bikes are donated through our partners and community members. We partner with community-based organizations for distribution of bicycles. 

We are grateful for the support from our partners Prevelo, Trek Bicycles and Sony Pictures.

About the Program

In the Spring of 2020, we began collecting, repairing and distributing used bicycles, primarily to kids in need. It didn’t take long to realize how many quality used bikes are out there and how many kids need wheels for exercise, transportation and fun. The program proved so successful we made it a permanent part of our programming adding a Bike Hub where we store bikes waiting for repair and pickup, parts, tools and materials. 

In 2021, we signed on with LA Metro as part of their Adopt-A-Bike program in an effort to reach even more people in need of reliable transportation. Through additional community partnerships we have expanded the program, adding student trainings and workshops. Our program also provides opportunities to train students in bike repair, bike safety, and community advocacy.
