Project Life-Cycle's mission is to provide free, refurbished bicycles and new helmets to anyone who needs one.
Four years ago, Project Life-Cycle was started in a garage with the idea that if donated bicycles could be repaired and given to those in need, we could make a difference in people’s lives. Since then, Project Life-Cycle has provided almost 1000 free bicycles to 20 different service organizations and school districts, and countless individuals throughout the Twin Cities Metro Area. In 2012, utilizing our dedicated shop facilities, we distributed over 500 bicycles to individuals and families, partnered with over 35 service organizations and businesses, and formed a community of over 100 volunteers to repair and redistribute donated bikes and to reach out to those in need in the Twin Cities Metro Area. Next year, we hope to distribute over 750 bikes and need your help.
Your generous support means that we can continue to provide basic transportation to those who need it the most. We believe in enabling people of all ages and all walks of life to get to work, school, the store, etc. – the freedom to go where they want, when they want. We also believe in promoting a healthy lifestyle and doing our part to preserve the environment. But mostly, we do this because it helps build a better society. A community where people come together and give back to people in need. A community where people come together to learn about each other and from each other. Project Life-Cycle provides this opportunity. Help us build a better society through Project Life-Cycle!
