Bikes For Humanity PDX

Bikes For Humanity PDX (B4HPDX) is a local, public charity project providing affordable refurbished bicycles to riders of all economic backgrounds.


We host donation/adoption drive events that efficiently and sustainably transition under-utilized bikes back onto the streets.  Our volunteers also serve the community at free tune-up clinics during local events.

We provide professional bike repair curriculum, tools, and shop space for volunteers to learn and work on refurbishing donated bikes.



Here are B4HPDX's Teams and Committees formed to realize our organizational goals.

We hope that you will consider joining us in building a stronger and healthier bicycling community here in Portland, Oregon.
