BIKES FOR TYKES
Realities For Children’s Bikes For Tykes program is one of our longest running distribution programs, distributing bicycles and new helmets to the at-risk children we serve since 1996. Each year individuals, groups, and organizations donate their new or used bicycles to us, then we safety-check and refurbish them via local bike shop partners. These bikes are given to registered youth who are being served by one of Realities for Children Charities Affiliate Youth Agencies who serve abused children locally.
At the bike distribution, we provide each child with a helmet to ensure safe riding. Bicycle mechanics are on-hand to properly adjust seat height, select the correctly sized helmet, install training wheels, and help the children pick out the “right” bike.
We would like to extend a grateful thank you to all the bike shops that donate their time and support to Bikes for Tykes! We truly couldn’t do it without them.
We are not currently accepting bike donations.
Thank you to the 2014 Bikes For Tykes Sponsors!
