Bikes for Christ is a 501 C 3 organization that provides donated bicycles to the needy, veterans, underprivileged children, and seniors while also ministering to their spiritual needs and sharing God’s love with them.
Bikes For Christ was started in 2016 with a commitment to helping those in need while also sharing the love of God. Our organization has quickly grown to encompass providing transportation across Hillsborough, Pinellas, Polk, and Pasco Counties with a mission to one day be nationwide. By showing God’s love through providing bicycles for those in need, we hope to lead them to a life in His eternal kingdom.
