Our Story

In 2008, the first FB4K chapter in Minneapolis gave gave away 300 bikes, then the following year – 5,000 bikes! It only grew from there…

In the last 14 years, the FB4K organization has expanded exponentially. Delaware 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 Delaware 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 volunteers to clean and refurbish them, and then we give them away to youth-serving non-profits and other organizations.

Our Method

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 outgrown each year. This means there is a virtually endless supply of bikes with more life left in them, that need a new home.bikecircle
