Help me help Back Alley Bikes to continue to be a valuable resource for Detroit's cycling community with this important annual fundraiser! For over 20 years, Back Alley Bikes' mission has been to provide cycling education and services with a focus on youth development, sustainable practices, and community access.
During this unprecidented year of virtual connections, Back Alley Bikes has managed to stay focused on their mission by getting free used bikes to as many Detroit youth as they've been able to find, thanks to creative partnerships throughout the city. So far this year, they've been able to give over 200 bikes to kids, and have dozens more in the works for the holidays!
They've also managed to keep the doors open during the pandemic to continue to provide a safe environment with resources for Detroit's broad cycling community, like DIY Open Shop time with available used parts and educational classes. They have remained open for Volunteer time, which is the backbone of getting bikes ready to distribute to Detroit's youth! Back Alley Bikes has also been able to give dozens of bikes and locks to housing insecure and other vulnerable community members with their Spokes for Folks partnership program.
Help me with a donation to help Back Alley Bikes, and thank you!
