Thanks for clicking to learn more about our Youth Bike Giveaway program. Please note, this application process is intended for community groups/centers, nonprofits, neighborhood block clubs, churches, or individuals with a cohort of connected children to whom they can distribute these bikes. At this time, we’re unable to accommodate individual requests for single bikes, or bikes for adults over age 18. Groups representing low-income communities will be given preference in our applications.

We’re getting bikes out to those who need them across the City of Buffalo!

GObike is excited to start accepting applications for our 2024 Youth Bike Giveaway Program.

The events of the past couple years have brought to the forefront how invaluable community, wellness, and the joy of play are to the quality of our days, months, and years.

Through GObike’s bike giveaway and safety education programs, we aim to provide bicycles and safety resources to up to 160 children living in low-income households in the City of Buffalo, build equity by providing personal mobility and access to free play, and encourage behaviors that will lead to improved long-term health outcomes and quality of life.

If your group, nonprofit, or community organization is interested in obtaining bicycles to give away to youth in your networks, please fill out the form below. We are not accepting singular requests from private households at this time.

What we can provide:

-Up to 10 bicycles to each group/org
-A tool kit for maintenance for the group/ org that request the bikes.
-Safety instruction for young cyclist and helmet fitting.
-Lights, locks & helmets for each bike.

Requests will be reviewed on a rolling basis You can expect a response via email within 2 weeks of submitting your request. We may contact you via email to obtain further information. We anticipate bikes will be available for distribution in the spring.
