Community events

Bike clinics, family popsicle rides and bike carnivals are just a few of the ways we bring bikes into our community.

Access to bikes

Earn-a-bike programs and bike libraries help ensure all kids can experience the joy of cycling.

Help make your neighborhood a better place

Participate

We have so many programs you can plug into. From Bicycle camps to community events – we'd love to create community with you!

Volunteer

Share your passion and energy with us. Whether you're great at event planning or bike tuning, we can find the perfect fit for you at Kids on Bikes.

Donate

We can't do it without you. Just $50 gives a child a helmet and toolkit. Even better – donate your bike! Everything helps to empower kids to get out and ride.

Proud partners

In January 2017, Kids on Bikes moved their Pedal Station inside MER. The Pedal Station offers many services including sales of used bikes, volunteer opportunities and more. We’ll be announcing more exciting news about the relationship between MER and Kids on Bikes in the near future.
