CONTRIBUTE TO THE WORK
Bike Fun exists to create joyful and confident bicycle riders in Middle Tennessee and beyond. As a micro-sized brand new non-profit, there's a few things you can do to help in our mission: 
  • Tell your friends! Follow us on social media, share our information, and get our name out there. 
  • Got a bicycle you're no longer using - especially 24" youth and extra small adult sizes? We can accept gently used bicycles as donations and provide you with a tax receipt! Contact KJ for more information.
  • Sign up to be a Patreon of Bike Fun with small, recurring monthly donations that go towards funding accessible activities. Thanks to Kathryn W., Carey R., and Brennan W. for being Patreons! (Patreon contributions are tax-deductible.)
  • Volunteer! As we begin planning for Fall, 2021, volunteers are desired for small group rides, for maintenance clinics, and to serve as board members to help shape the mission of Bike Fun. Get in touch to help us out!
UPCOMING EVENT IDEAS
