The Portland Gear Hub is hosting 3 one-day events throughout the summer for kids ages 11 and under to earn bikes at no cost. At each Kids Bike Party, kids will walk through different stations learning about bike safety and helmet fit before earning their newly refurbished bike! Eligible kids include those whose families are enrolled in our Bikes for All Mainers program (this year or past participants) as well as any family experiencing economic instability or uncertainty.
How does it work?
- Sign-up in advance. Limited number of bikes available.
- Adult must be present with any child attending and receiving a bike
- Bikes are reserved for those experiencing economic instability
- If you have a child older than 11, please check out our Bikes for All Mainers program available to ages 12+
