Free Bikes 4 Kidz moves back to Bloomington for the 2019 season

It has been a few years since Free Bikes 4 Kidz (FB4K) set up shop in Bloomington, MN at the Mall of America (MOA). Now they are back, a few miles west of the MOA, ready to start wrenching, cleaning and polishing slightly used bikes to put smiles on more kids faces. For the 2019 season, the old Toys R Us building at 7839 Southtown Center, is a fitting location and easy for volunteers to get to.

Volunteer and you can help put these kind of priceless smiles on more children's faces.

About Free Bikes 4 Kidz (FB4K’s)

Free Bikes 4 Kidz is a non-profit organization geared toward helping all kids ride into a happier, healthier childhood by providing free bikes to those most in need. When the public donates gently used bikes, FB4K’s organizes thousands of volunteers to clean and refurbish them, and then they give them away to kids in need. They started in 2008, fixing and giving away 300 bikes and in 2014 they reached the goal of 5,000 bikes. In the last seven years over 25,000 bikes have rolled through the FB4B’s giveaways and their sights in the future are set on other locations throughout the U.S. and the world.
