A little about Bike Bakersfield

Bike Bakersfield
is a Non-Profit bicycle advocacy group
Our mission is to promote bicycling as a safe, fun and environmentally friendly alternative means of transportation.
Bike to school, Bike to Work, Bike for Fun!!
Bicycling promotes healthier lifestyles, reduces vehicular traffic congestion, decreases polluting emissions, and reduces energy consumption.
Bicycling directly affects the overall quality of life in the Kern County community.
Throughout the year: We present bicycle safety assemblies at elementary schools, encourage and support high school clubs, research routes for people to get to work, school, the store or where ever they want to go.
We also have a bike kitchen where people can stop by and use our tools to work on their bikes. And if they can’t afford a bike, we offer a program where they can volunteer to obtain a bike.
Bakersfield can become the kind of place where children ride bikes to school and to see friends, parents ride to and from work, and the whole family enjoys bicycling to soccer practice, to visit family, to the grocery store, or maybe just for an ice cream cone!
