At Christmas, we provide brand new bikes to underserved youth in Alameda and Contra Costa Counties so that they can get to school and jobs on time, as well as have fun with their friends.
Annually on the first Saturday of December we conduct a Big Bike Build at the Alameda County Fairgrounds in Pleasanton, California. In 2021, about 275 volunteers helped assemble 600 bikes that were in turn given to 21 charities to present to their family/children clients.
We partner with companies and other organizations to provide a team building and community service activity for their employees as they assemble new bikes to be given to kids in need in their community.
Each year we sponsor several free bike repair clinics at schools, community centers, or parks where kids bring their bikes with flat tires, defective brakes, or loose chains to be fixed. Kids leave on their repaired bike or with a refurbished bike if theirs cannot be repaired. Nothing beats seeing kids smile as they ride away on their bikes!
