Urban Bike Project is a Wilmington-based non-profit organization whose mission to “supports Wilmington communities by providing access to bicycling as a healthy, affordable and practical means of transportation and recreation.” has reached a milestone this month by putting more than 1,100 donated bikes into the hands of Wilmington families in 2020, which outdid 2019’s record of 574 bikes. 

As part of its bike distribution, Urban Bike Project donated 80 bikes and helmets to kids age 5-8 through its Fifth Annual Holiday Bike Giveaway. Volunteers from UBP along with members of the Biking Blue Hens refurbished the bikes and distributed them to youngsters at Bellevue Community Center, Kingwood Community Center, Hicks Anderson Community Center and the Community Education Building.

Another 150 bikes were given away for free to Wilmington youth and adults for recreation, fitness, and transportation. Adults who receive free bikes use them to overcome significant transportation challenges, often to reach jobs and appointments that are not serviced by buses. 

Since 2006, Urban Bike Project has supported Wilmington communities by providing access to bicycling as a healthy, affordable and practical means of recreation. You can learn more about Urban Bike Project here.
