Bikes have always been part of D2N. Our bike program began at the Birmingham Bike Festival (BBF) where D2N sponsored a parade-style ride for kids of all abilities including children with significant disabilities. Funds and awareness were raised for Beaumont’s Pediatric Rehabilitation Department which provides free, custom adaptive bikes for children with special needs. Participants at the BBF were encouraged to donate their unused bikes through American Cycle and Fitness who then distributed the bikes to youth programs Detroit. This program morphed into a program that ultimately donated hundreds of bikes to The Hub/Back Alley Bikes for their youth programs.
