Bike Clinics

Volunteer engineers, bike techs & students build the bikes in the morning and then the children arrive in the afternoon to get fitted by volunteer occupational and physical therapists.  Adjustments are made and the children can take the bikes home!  It’s an amazing day!

Process

Families submit requests along with a video of the child walking or riding a bike from school (below).  Virtual meetings are held to gather measurements and medical information and to determine customization. Once given the thumbs up by both of our approval committees, we are ready to order parts and build the bike. We also supply a helmet – to match the new, cool, head-turning bike!

Volunteer

Bike Clinics/home builds are special opportunities for volunteers with limited time and for children and adults with disabilities who are unable to ride a standard bicycle.  Many smiles and tears of joy!
