Nov. 1-Dec. 2
Realities For Children’s Bikes For Tykes program is one of our longest-running distribution programs, giving bicycles and new helmets to the children we serve, ages 2-17.
Each year, kind-hearted individuals, groups, and organizations donate new or gently used bicycles to our collection (although we will accept new bikes at any time during the year). Bikes are repaired and safety-checked at our local bike shop partners (listed below).
Then on a happy day in December, the bikes are given to registered youth who are being served by one of our Partner Agencies. Every child is given a helmet to ensure safe riding. Bicycle mechanics are on-hand to adjust seat heights properly, ensure tires are inflated and assist with any other bicycle fixes.
HOW CAN YOU HELP?
Donate your gently-used bike to one of the participating bike partners listed below starting Nov 1 - Dec 2. (please no rips, tears or chipped paint)
Year-round, we are happy to accept NEW bikes directly at the Realities For Children Homebase. (308 E. County Road 30, Fort Collins, CO 80525) Please contact [email protected] or 970-484-9090 x105 prior to dropping off your new bike to ensure someone will be available to receive your donation.
Bikes are needed for children ages 2 to 17 with a high need of 24"+ bicycles for our teens.
