  • Free Bikes for Kids under 15

    FROM THE BIKE CHURHC AND BIKE SHACK
    Each child is entitled to one free bike per year. Contact the Bike Church to see if they have a bike suitable for your youth. Keep in mind that supply is somewhat erratic and bike condition is unpredictable. They are all volunteer mechanics and can repair the bikes (for the younger kids) with some notice.The older teens need to contribute something toward their bikes in terms of time or working on the bike themselves. Email: thebikechurch@gmail.com. Website: http://bikechurch.santacruzhub.org/
    The Bike Shack: Similar to the Bike Church, the Bike Shack also runs off of donations of bikes, and therefore their supply varies as well. If your youth is looking for a bike, contact Lorenzo at 831-296-0326 or by emailing elbikeshack@gmail.com.
    ALL CHILDREN WHO GET BIKES NEED HELMETS. Contact Ana (ana@casaofsantacruz.org) to discuss getting a helmet for your youth.
