We believe that safe cycling—as recreation, social activity, and sustainable transportation—improves people’s overall physical and mental health.
That's why we partner with the Bradley Street Bicycle Co-op to put free bikes, helmets, and locks into the hands of the people we serve.
Bike Giveaway Program
Our dedicated team of outpatient rehabilitation therapists manages the bike giveaway program in collaboration with the Bradley Street Bicycle Co-op. They connect clients with bikes, provide safety classes, and follow up to ensure that clients have the support they need to continue cycling safely and effectively.
For our clients, having bicycles (and helmets!) contributes to recovery. Cycling saves them money, increases their access to community resources, and expands their social networks. Choosing cycling helps ease air pollution in our community, and that’s good for everyone.
