DESCRIPTION OF BUSINESS:

Formed November, 2008 as an impromptu holiday bike-a-thon, Bike Lady, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, 100% all-volunteer charitable organization based in Columbus, Ohio with the mission to:

To enrich the daily life experience and expand opportunities of Ohio at-risk youth by providing new bikes, helmets, and locks to children who have a history of abuse, neglect, and abandonment, and are served by county child protective services (foster care placement). And, to provide Ohio inmate offenders a chance to give back through volunteer bike assembly community service.

Since, 2008, Team Bike Lady has provided over 10,000 (TEN THOUSAND) Ohio kids in foster care across 53 different Ohio counties a shiny brand new bike, plus helmet and lock, typically during the holiday season. They partner with the Ohio Department of Rehabilitation and Corrections where offenders in 10 different Ohio prisons volunteer their time to assemble the bikes. The prisons also assist in distribution of the bikes to the counties they serve. They hope to get to all 88 Ohio counties eventually. Their wish is that every child in foster care might enjoy the positive lifelong memory of that first new bike.
