Since 1988 BicycleWorks has repurposed for nonprofit programming, 10,000 bikes (and bike parts) that would have otherwise gone to a landfill. Each year about 50 at-risk kids from the city learn about bike safety and basic maintenance, while they earn a refurbished bike, helmet. lock, and light through their free Earn-A-Bike program.
