Thank You for Giving to LBK
We appreciate everyone who generously donated during Give to Lincoln Day. We couldn't do what we do without the support of those who believe in our mission. Thank you for your continued support! If you'd like to make a donation to the Lincoln Bike Kitchen, visit our donation page.
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 Bike Donations
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.
Thanks to the Lincoln community for your generosity donating bikes. Due to the amount of bikes we need to process and fix, we're temporarily suspending bike donations until further notice. If you have a bike to donate, hang onto it. We just need a bit of time to work through our current inventory. Thank you for your patience!
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 400 bikes. 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!
