Free Bikes 4 Kidz Utah Seeks Used Bicycles

Free Bikes 4 Kidz Utah is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that believes every kid deserves a bike. Too often, bikes that kids have outgrown sit unused in garages or end up the landfill. Meanwhile, many children grow up without a bike of their own. FB4K wants to help solve both of these problems by collecting and refurbishing used bikes and distributing them to kids in need.

FB4K Utah will be hosting four Bike Collection Events in July:

  • Saturday, July 4th from 10:00 am to Noon
  • Saturday, July 11th from 10:00 am to Noon
  • Saturday, July 18th from 10:00 am to Noon
  • Saturday, July 25th from 10:00 am to Noon

Please help us get the word out to your readers to bring their used bikes during those hours to:
FB4K Warehouse 2250 S. Main St in Salt Lake City

These are outdoor events. Face masks, physical distancing, and sanitary procedures will be observed. Bikes for kids (including tricycles and striders) are our primary focus, but we accept adult bikes too. We accept bikes in any condition.

This is a Collection Event only. No bikes will be distributed at these events.

What happens next? Volunteer mechanics and non-mechanics sort, clean, and repair donated bikes. The refurbished bikes along with new helmets are distributed to low-income families. FB4K does not distribute bikes directly to the public, but instead works through Community Partners which currently include Circles Salt Lake, The Road Home, South Salt Lake Promise, Millcreek Promise, Head Start, and Hartland Community for Youth and Families.
