Welcome to Foster Bikes!

Foster Bikes is a student-led non-profit organization dedicated to providing refurbished bikes to foster and low income children. For many children, summers are spent riding bikes with friends. Many foster and low income children do not have the opportunity to own bikes. At Foster Bikes, we take gently used children's bicycles, clean them, repair them, and finally donate them to foster programs.

When we receive a donated child's bike, we give the bike a thorough cleaning and then start the repairs. Even if a bike comes to us in apparently great shape, the chain can always use a little scrubbing and a bit of oil. If the paint job on the bike is damaged, we make some careful touch-ups, so when we finish, the bicycle is one a child can be proud of.

Do you have a child's bike in your garage that is too small for anybody in the house or no longer gets used? Please consider donating it to Foster Bikes. We make donating to Foster Bikes as easy as possible for you. To donate a bike, simply fill out the form on our Donations page and we will contact you.

A bicycle embodies freedom and joy. With your help we can give this experience to foster children!
