The Great Bike Giveaway Gives Away 1,000 Adaptive Bikes

In 2012, Friendship Circle started the Great Bike Giveaway a program with the mission to provide as many adaptive bikes to children with special needs as possible. Since then the Great Bike Giveaway has grown tremendously. Below is a recap of the campaign as well as some of its highlights.

How the Great Bike Giveaway Began

How the Great Bike Giveaway Began

The Great Bike Giveaway started with the simple gift of a bike. 45 years later that simple gift touched thousands of individuals with special needs. Learn how it all got started.


The Benefits of an Adaptive Bike

For a child with special needs bike riding offers far more than a recreational experience. An adaptive bike provides freedom, independence and most importantly an inclusive opportunity to ride bikes with friends and family members. Here is some of the feedback Friendship Circle has received over the years.

Media Coverage of the Great Bike Giveaway

Television and Print Media took a big interest in the personal stories of participants trying to receive a bike for their child with special needs. Here is a sampling of some of the hundreds of television and newspaper stories.

Pictures and Videos of the New Bikes

Hundreds of Great Bike Giveaway submitted pictures and video of their new bikes. Nothing shows the importance of these bikes more than the smiles on the faces of these children.
