PEDALS FOR THE PEOPLE
The adult bike giveaway program aims to increase access to bicycles in Tacoma/Pierce County.
Program participants will receive a free bicycle, helmet, lock, lights, and fix a flat kit.
This program will be first come first serve, or greatest need demonstrated.
Upon being awarded the bicycle, participants will be required to participate in a hands-on hour-long class with a focus on learning how to patch an inner tube, fit a helmet, and perform a basic pre-ride safety check on their bicycle.
All participants who receive a bicycle through this program will also be given a helmet, lights, a lock, and a patch kit.
Eligible adults will need to currently reside in Pierce County; however, they will not be required to provide proof of residency as we would like to lower barriers to folks without housing. Eligibility will also be awarded based on self-declared income – parameters for income will be based on the WA State Housing and Food Assistance Program’s qualifying income.
