What We Do

TFKC provides bicycle education programs, access to the bicycle across all socioeconomic classes, and transformative ride experiences for underserved youth while creating a healthy, educational, and safe environment for those in need within the Charlotte community.

We use biking as a tool to help kids learn life lessons, focused on respect, honesty, teamwork, overcoming obstacles,healthy and safe lifestyle, service. We introduce children to the healthy, lifelong activity of cycling, and focusing on riding safely in the city of Charlotte.

Currently we have a Earn a Bike program at the the Recyclery, community outreach Earn a Bike, clinics and classes at the Recyclery, and Saturday morning and after school Ride Program that goes through March-November.

Also we offer free clinics and bike educational classes at our used bike shop, the Recyclery for adult and families such as Woman's only clinic, Tire Change, and basic bike maintenance.

Our Charlotte Re-Cyclery accepts donated bikes which we refurbish and sell back into the community at reasonable prices to help support our Kids' Programs and help the environment. We are 100% sustainable company and recycle every part of the bicycle and keep all waste out of landfills.
