As an alternative to a referral from a partner organization, we offer opportunities for adults and youth to earn a Freecyclery bike through our Earn-a-Bike Fellowship programs.

  • We require that all who earn a bike also earn OR purchase a secure lock.
  • Time required to earn a bike, lock and helmet: 16 hours, within a 1-month span.
  • Option: put in 12 hours only, and plan to purchase a U-Lock and helmet for $25 upon receipt of bike.

Come to the shop at the right time, complete a 1-page application, and begin earning your bike the same day!

Earn-A-Bike Fellows spend a portion of their Fellowship hours refurbishing the bike that they will take home. Additional hours will be dedicated to helping with shop organization projects, and repairing other bikes for the Freecyclery Program

Adults are able to work towards earn-a-bike time during our Volunteer Hours:

  • Monday 12-3pm
  • Tuesday 7-9pm
  • Wednesday 6-8 pm
  • Thursday 10am-1pm
