In 2008, the first FB4K chapter in Minneapolis gave gave away 300 bikes, the following year – 5000 bikes!
In the last 14 years, the FB4K organization has expanded exponentially. Omaha is the 18th city to open a chapter in the United States. Over 120,000 bikes have rolled through FB4K giveaways over the years and we’re not done yet—our future sights are set on other locations throughout the US and the world.
Mission & Purpose
Free Bikes 4 Kidz Omaha is a non-profit organization geared toward helping all kids ride into a happier, healthier childhood by providing bikes to those most in need. The public donates gently used bikes, we organize thousands of volunteers to clean and refurbish them, and then we give them away to kids in need.
Every year 25 million bikes are sold in the US. One-third of those bikes are 20” wheel-size, or smaller. Since kids grow like weeds, over 8 million bikes are virtually outgrown each year. Endless supply. Sustainability.
Our Board of Directors and Staff
Free Bikes 4 Kidz is driven by a passionate and invested steering committee.
