On the first Saturday of December each year Kids Bike Lane conducts a Big Bike Build at the Alameda County Fairgrounds in Pleasanton, California. On December 19, 2019, we anticipate over 250 volunteers will help to assemble 800 bikes that will be distributed to 25 charities that serve Alameda and Contra Costa Counties. Registration will be open in early November for our 2019 Big Bike Build. We are always in need of qualified bike mechanics who are willing to donate a day to help ensure the bikes are assembled properly and safely. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org for registration information.
We spend the year soliciting donations, applying for grants and reaching out to corporations and individuals to raise the funds needed to provide these new bikes to kids in our communities. We especially thank our major corporate sponsor, Therma, for their generous donation, of which $25,000 is being used in 2019 to enable us to order 800 new bikes and helmets from Dynacraft and Helmets R Us for this year’s Big Bike Build.
