Not just on Valentine's Day, but five days per week, Good Karma Bikes (@GoodKarmaBikes) helps people in need with their bicycle transportation. In our five year history, we have performed: one million dollars worth of bike repairs. No charge. That's a lot of love. That's a lot of pay it forward. Please consider a donation to keep the love going year round.

KALW Public Radio did a four minute story on Good Karma Bike's, @GoodKarmaBikes free Saturday Repair Clinic. Thanks to KALW for recognizing the importance of this social issue.
If you'd like to help us in our quest to support safe, reliable bicycle transportation for all, volunteer with GKB.
If you'd like to provide a bicycle to someone whoo does not have one, please make a tax deductible $50 donation.
This photo was taken from today's Saturday Free Repair Clinic. The service we provide is crucial to those who rely upon their bicycle--their only capital asset--for transportation. "My bike is the only way I have to get around" says Jesus. "I was waiting in line since 7:30 this morning" says Linda. "Oh sir, could you please have my bike done by 1PM? I am homeless and the shelter starts intake at 3PM" says Daniel.
In 2014, Good Karma Bikes (@GoodKarmaBikes) served 2,119 people in need with safe, reliable bicycle transportation through 11,971 volunteer hours and 729 new volunteers. We were able to grant free of charge 162 bicycles which is 20% of all bicycles we performed service on. For every three bicycles GKB touched, 2.34 of them were worked on for free.
Please help us continue to serve the community and those who rely on their bicycle for transportation. Just $50 will provide a free bicycle to someone. Please donate today!
