Marcell & Faith, Adult Earn-A-Bike graduates with their new bikes!

We regret to report that we are not currently accepting applications for Adult Earn-A-Bike. The program will return soon. Please contact mail@bikesnotbombs.org with any questions.

 

Started in April of 2015 our Adult Earn-A-Bike program is designed to fill in the gaps of our Youth programs for adults who do not have financial access to bikes or face systemic oppression.

In order to earn a bike adults are required to:

  • Participate for 5 hours either by volunteering or attending free clinics (Volunteer Night is Thurs. 7-10pm, clinics are scheduled twice per month) 
  • attend a final Adult Earn-A-Bike clinic.  
  • Submit a sliding scale fee of $25-$50, with fee waivers available.

Eligible participants are 19 years of age or older, and identify with one of the following:

  • lack financial access to bikes
  • live in a community that is underserved by public transportation
  • in transition from incarceration
  • immigrant to the US

After graduation, participants will earn a professionally refurbished bicycle, a helmet, lock and lights.  Participants will also be trained in basic bicycle maintenance, safe riding skills, and how to use their bike accessories.  All graduates will receive a 15% discount at the BNB Bike Shop for one year and access to Adult Earn-A-Bike Alumni Night.
