These programs will take place in the Building Bikes Lab located in our facility at 29th and the Canal. Facility address: 1271 W 29th St, Indianapolis, IN 46208.
Thanks to individual donors and funding partners, 100% of Kids Building Bikes participants will receive a scholarship that covers between 50%-95% of the program’s cost. That scholarship amount is based on factors like household income and household size on a case-by-case basis.
While the value of our training and the equipment that successful graduates will earn upon completion of the program is $1,000, we understand that cost can be a barrier to families. We don’t want that to be a reason a child can’t participate, because Kids Building Bikes exists to increase the accessibility of the bicycle for every child.
