Building a stronger, safer community by spreading joy with the gift of a bike.

The freedom. The joy. The possibilities. 

The bikes we donate for the at-risk youth, underprivileged children and the forgotten are to help them become the future leaders and influencers of the Greater New Orleans Community. By providing bikes, we are teaching responsibility, encouraging community spirit, promoting a healthier lifestyle and providing transportation to school, work and all the things that every New Orleanian wants to enjoy. We want to use our platform to give back to the community that we love and cherish.

Do you remember your first bike?

How to get involved

BYOBIkes partners with individuals, local businesses, national corporations and New Orleans-based non-profit organizations, which wish to make a difference in our community. We rely on the donation of funds to purchase the bikes, volunteers to build the bikes and the assistance of local community organizations to distribute the bikes so we all together can give back to our community. Aside from donations, we hold events throughout the year.

At BYOBIkes we believe in a strong sense of community. We live, work and play in NOLA and enjoy all that it has to offer. So many in our community can’t enjoy the full benefits of our amazing city due to geographical, economic or transportation issues. We want to use our experience, know-how, and connections in the city that we grew up in to raise funds to build bikes.

We love NOLA

Hey ya’ll – we have been approved by the IRS and have received our 501©(3). We really need help from our community to help get things rolling! The sooner we roll, the sooner the kids can roll! Every $150 collected buys a bike, helmet, lock, lights, bike registration and safety class. Small donations add up, please give what you can!
