Crank is proud to announce our support of B.I.K.E (Bicycles and Ideas for Kids Empowerment). B.I.K.E. was founded just down the street from us in 1995 and has been providing kids with new opportunities and serving our community ever since.

It is based on the principle of learning and growing and “transforming lives, one pedal stroke at a time.” In the process of becoming full-fledged riders, and even racers, they visit some of Portland’s highlights (OMSI, Art Museum, Reed, UP, PSU) by bike to help kids have fun and grow.

B.I.K.E is run by a dedicated group of adult volunteers who work with kids to help them move from primary school to college, and from training wheels to the track.

For more information go check out their website or ask us the next time you’re in the shop!
