Lincoln Bike Kitchen refurbishing used bikes to give away this holiday season

LINCOLN, Neb. (KLKN) – Lincoln Bike Kitchen, a nonprofit specializing in bicycle refurbishment, is asking for bike donations.

In partnership with the Nebraska Recycling Council, LBK is collecting used bikes to refurbish and distribute to low-income families for the holiday season.

The bikes are going to be distributed to K-12 schools, community centers and refugee centers.

Lincoln Bike Kitchen said it’s already distributed over 700 bikes so far this year but wants to reach its goal of 1,000.

“It’s nice to be able to see people that might not otherwise be able to have a bike to be able to have one,” President Von Kaenel said.

Bikes must be gently used, have no rust and not need a lot of refurbishing so the kitchen can get them ready to go before the holidays.

If you have any used bikes, you can take them to LBK starting on Monday.

The shop will be open that day from 9 to 11 a.m. and 5:30 to 7:30 p.m.

LBK will accept bikes before and after that date during open hours:

Mondays, 9-11 a.m. and 5:30-7:30 p.m.
Thursdays, 5:30-7:30 p.m.
