Bike Fair

Bike Fair

Members of Working Bikes Cooperative collect and refurbish old and abandoned bikes throughout the city and then donate them to worthy charities, including CHI

Every Spring since 2006, we’ve partnered with Working Bikes to distribute up to 75 bikes, helmets and locks to our guests. Transportation is a big challenge for very low-income and homeless people. For many of our guests, having two wheels is a great solution to getting around — as well as improving their health.

Our next Bike Fair is Saturday, June 2, 2018 and we’re seeking volunteers!

We rely on our dedicated volunteers to help us refurbish the bikes and be on hand at our fair to assist our guests in finding the right fit, as well as distribute free helmets and locks to each recipient. If you’d like to volunteer, please contact us.
