Our Mission

Building healthy, sustainable communities one bike at a time.

onbikes is a Tampa based 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that was formed in 2011 when a group of friends organized a community bike ride during the winter holiday season to raise funds so at-risk kids could receive their very first bike. It was an incredible success, and it was then that onbikes was born. At onbikes we are simply doing our part in restoring the self-confidence, health, and overall well-being of at-risk kids in our community.

It might sound simple, but something so small as a bike can make a very real difference. For the child who isn’t expecting a gift under the tree. For the child who wants to explore with friends. For the teen who needs transportation to school or to work. onbikes is dedicated to providing a new bike to each and every one. Because a bike is more than just a bike. A bike means possibility. Because on bikes, kids go places.

How To Get Involved


Over 400,000 kids are living without permanent families in the U.S. After aging out of the system, 25% of foster teens will experience homelessness at least once. Most foster homes are without the resources to provide recreational activities or transportation to school, after-school activities or jobs. With your help, we can change that. Because a new bike means possibilities.


Our team is small, but our community is mighty.

Every year, over 1,000 volunteers gather to help us assemble brand new bikes. You don’t need to be an expert, we have professionals there to help you along the way! You just need to have a passion for making a difference in our community.
