ADOPT A BIKE!
Bikes for Humanity refers to a bicycle’s return to use, whether as a sale or a grant, as an adoption. It is our hope that each of our bicycles returned to circulation and will be ridden, valued, and maintained for years to come. A bicycle overhauled at Bikes for Humanity represents hours of work done either by volunteers and grantees. It represents hands-on education, freedom and empowerment for its rider, and our mission in action. In addition to volunteers and donors who didn’t want didn’t want their unused bicycle to go to waste, we need you to adopt our lovingly overhauled bikes! Adopting a bicycle is statement that you value community, the environment, and yourself.
During the off season (starting in November, and ending whenever it gets nice in mid-Spring), we develop a large stock of refurbished bikes, and these 6 bikes represent 1/3 or so of our ready-ride bikes. Come by see what’s available or check out our as-is bikes to take home and refurbish or for us to fix up for you.
We size our bikes from the top of the seat tube to the middle of the bottom bracket, which we acknowledge is antiquated, but we hope you find helpful. You’ll have to test ride one to find which fits!
