St. Louis Bicycle Works gives local kids something to pedal towards.
St. Louis Bicycle Works, the charter program of St. Louis BWorks, was founded in 1988 with the idea that everyone deserves the chance to pursue their dreams. The foundation of St. Louis Bicycle works is our Earn-a-Bike program, which gives kids the chance to earn a free bike while they learn about bicycle safety and maintenance from our volunteers. About 50 kids graduate from the program every year, earning their own bike, helmet, light and lock. Through our Earn-a-Bike program and other work, we have provided over 10,000 bikes to inner-city kids over the past 24 years. St. Louis Bicycle Works also features a bike shop where anyone can purchase fully refurbished bikes, with all proceeds benefitting St. Louis BWorks programs directly.

On Saturday we dropped off our final bikes to be given away to local youth for the holidays. 265 bicycles in total donated in the past four weeks to other local kids charities. We hope that we have introduced you to just a few of the many non-profits in STL and we hope that in some way we have inspired you to join us or others in making STL a little better. Happy Holidays!
