In 2008 FB4K Minnesota gave away 300 bikes, last year – 10,000 bikes, this year – who knows. FB4K has gone from a Minneapolis based non-profit to now having replicated in over 7 communities.
2018 is the inaugural year for Free Bikes 4 Kidz in the Eugene-Springfield community, and we are pedal to the metal to help as many kids as we can to ride into a happier and healthier childhood.
Mission & Purpose
Free Bikes 4 Kidz Eugene-Springfield 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.
Our Board of Directors and Staff
Free Bikes 4 Kidz is driven by a passionate and invested board of directors and staff.

Though the generous help of key partners FB4K has gone far, but we still need support in building the foundation to help every kid ride into a more memorable childhood.
