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!

Did you know?

30% of Chicago’s homeless population suffers from mental illness.

A lot of people don’t have shelter, food, clothing. They need help. And they get it here.”
