Since January 2006, Bike Bakersfield has refurbished over 800 bicycles and provided them to Bakersfield area residents. The goal of the program is to provide bicycles for individuals who are interested in building their own bike and willing to learn how to build and maintain a bicycle. Recipients put in 20 hours of volunteer work before receiving their bicycle. This program allows individuals, that wouldn't otherwise be able to afford a bicycle, access to affordable and healthy transportation. It takes a lot of time, effort and replacement parts to keep this program (and the bikes) running, and we need help. Please consider supporting us in these efforts.
