What’s Going On in the Great Bike Giveaway

For the 6th consecutive year, Friendship Circle is holding the Great Bike Giveaway, an annual campaign that strives to provide as many adaptive bikes as possible to children and teens with special needs. We partner with adaptive bike companies from around the world to offer these special bikes as well as a fundraising platform so friends and family members can help a young person with special needs experience the joy and independence of riding a bike.

As we near the midpoint of this campaign, we would like to give you a recap of everything happening in the Great Bike Giveaway.
