Donate May 1-25 to LBK
Give to Lincoln Day is a giving day event coordinated by Lincoln Community Foundation. Every donation May 1-25 makes a bigger impact on Give to Lincoln Day because nonprofits also get a proportional share of a $500,000 match fund made possible by LCF and generous sponsors. Thank you for your support of the Lincoln Bike Kitchen mission! Donate here.
The Lincoln Bike Kitchen is a community-building organization that provides bicycles and related resources to all people. We advocate for utilitarian bicycling as a vital part of a healthy, equitable and sustainable community. We connect cycling to broader environmental and social issues through outreach, and education.

Volunteer and Donate
LBK is an all-volunteer nonprofit bike cooperative supported by donations (bikes, parts, monetary). Our mission is to provide - at no cost - bikes, repairs and education to all.
Your generous donations help us achieve our mission. Donate new and used bicycles and parts can be dropped off at our location Mondays 9 a.m. to noon, and Thursdays, 5-7 p.m.
Bikes with 24-inch wheels are at the top of our list, with 20-inch wheel bikes next. However, we'll take all bikes that aren't "rust buckets!"
Want to volunteer? Once it's safe to reopen, simply show up during open shop hours. We can put all levels of ability to work.
Growing Our Mission
Since October, LBK has donated over 200 bikes since October 2020. In past years, LBK gave over 300 bikes to kids in 2016 and 650 in 2017, including a helmet and cable lock with each bike. Our success has been so overwhelming we are splitting at the seams and have outgrown our current space. We can't sustain this pace unless we find a new location.
If you know of a possible space for repairs, office work and storage, contact us so we can continue helping kids be kids by matching them with a gently used bike!
