One of your charitable gifts this year. Bring a needy Bay Area child a gift of a smile from a bike assembled by you and your colleagues. Make it a company Saturday event and join the chapter in this cause! No previous bike building experience necessary - instructions and assistance provided.


Join us for our 1st Annual Bike Build. This is a one day [ 9 am - 2 pm] event where TurningWheels for Kids with the help of 1000 volunteers will assemble 2500 bikes for charity organization all over the bay area. TurningWheels for Kids is a 501c3 nonprofit organization (Federal Tax ID 77-0187890).

  • 100% of your donation will go directly toward the purchase of bicycles and helmets.

  • Each year we work diligently to collect funds, purchase and assemble bikes and then distribute them to worthy, established children’s charities for their holiday giving programs.

  • TurningWheels For Kids distributes bikes not only at the holiday but also year round through a number of partnerships focused on preventing childhood obesity and supporting low-income families.

  • We must hit a reset button and bring children back outdoors to experience the fun we all remember from our childhoods. We must give children the opportunity to share bike riding as an important childhood rite of passage. And as the number one gift requested by these children, bikes can bring kids back outdoors to active play—exactly what a child should be doing.
