Valid Bike Shop Fund-A-Need
Can a bike be more than a bike? We think so. That’s why the Wisconsin Bike Fed operates Valid Bike Shop. Valid engages youth from the community, teaching them job readiness and basic maintenance skills in the repair of the bikes used in the Safe Routes to School program.
In partnership with Milwaukee Public Schools, the shop maintains over 150 donated bikes used to directly educate 2500 kids at over 28 sites each year. Thanks to donors at last year’s Saris Gala, the Bike Fed was able to launch a Mobile Bike Repair program to fixes bikes and teach basic repair at local community sites. Thanks for helping us expand this program!
