Magic happens at 1631 S. 1st Street where volunteer mechanics refurbish donated bikes year-round and offer education and free repair nights to the community.
Lincoln Bike Kitchen is best known for providing bikes at no cost to people of any age who need transportation to work or school. Partnerships with K-12 schools and community centers mean that bikes for recreation get into the hands of children who need them most.
Gifts of Hope options from $15-$70 will supply essentials like brake cables, shift cables, chains, milk crate baskets and bike helmets – ideal to honor bike lovers, outdoorsy friends, teachers, the person who gave you your first bike or for use as stocking stuffers. Look for the Lincoln Bike Shop in the online Gifts of Hope catalog, available December 3 and 4, or at the in-person market at First Lutheran on Sunday, December 4, from 8:30 am-12:30 pm.
If you happen to have a good unused bike in your garage, stop by the Lincoln Bike Kitchen during open hours. Your donation can help Bike Kitchen volunteers reach their goal of distributing 1,000 bikes in 2022.
