B4HPDX Home

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.

E-Bike 101 Class



Curious about what an electric bicycle is?
Wonder how much $$ you can save on gas for long and hilly commutes? How does an e-Bike work?

To educate the public about the cost-benefit considerations of e-bikes as a mode of transportation, B4HPDX will be hosting a free 1-hour public seminar inside the brand new Cynergy E-Bikes showroom in SE Portland, and also provide a chance for guided test rides on several different types of e-bikes.

Cynergy E-Bikes will make a financial contribution to B4HPDX for every test ride taken.
