Donate a bike to Earn-A-Bike program

Do you have an unused bicycle taking up space in the garage? Consider donating it to the BikeWalkKC Earn-A-Bike program, and help a student receive a free bike and basic bicycle skills.

BikeWalkKC has given out more than 300 bikes since the program began in 2012. The program teaches 4th – 6th grade students about basic bike maintenance techniques and bike handling skills over a six-to-eight-week period.

During a recent, week-long Family Earn-A-Bike program at Emerson Elementary School in Kansas City, KS, the school invited parents to join their children in the program. Using a condensed format that was easier for parents to participate in, the program helped 16 students and 14 parents earn bikes, and Kansas City, KS gained 30 new cyclists.

Bikes can be donated at the BikeWalkKC office, 3269 Gillham Road, Suite C, Kansas City, MO from 10 a.m. – 4 p.m., Monday – Friday or by appointment. For more information, Maggie Priesmeyer, education programs manager, at [email protected] or 816-205-7056, Ext. 7.
