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
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.
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.
