About the Holiday Bike Drive

Every child deserves the freedom, empowerment, and health benefits that come from riding a bike. However, the cost of purchasing a bicycle is a major barrier for many families living in underserved communities. So, every December the Community Cycling Center answers that call with our Holiday Bike Drive, a major event that delivers a safe, refurbished bicycle, a new helmet, and basic safety education to an average of 400 children. To date, we have provided nearly 11,000 bicycles to children from families living with low income. The Holiday Bike Drive is hosted at Legacy Emanuel and fully supported by community members, volunteers, and generous sponsors like YOU! This year’s event will be on December 15th.

Community And Values

At the Community Cycling Center, we believe that bikes make the world a better place. Our mission is to broaden access to bicycling and its benefits to help build a vibrant community where people of all backgrounds use bicycles to stay healthy and connected. We believe that all people – regardless of income or background – should be able to experience the joy, freedom, and health benefits of bicycling. This is the motivation behind everything that we do.
Your partnership continues a decades-long legacy of Portland’s community-wide support of the Community Cycling Center. Together, we can ensure that the most vulnerable families in our community can share access to cycling and its benefits.
