Eugene, OR (December 6, 2018) Burley Design – known for its award-winning outdoor recreational transport gear since 1978, is sponsoring the Free Bikes for Kidz initiative in the local Eugene and Springfield community to distribute bikes to children in need.

In addition to Free Bikes for Kidz, Burley teamed up with local non-profits, faith-based organizations, schools, and groups to collect hundreds of gently used bikes to tune up, repair, and distribute to children in the surrounding area. On December 8, kids in the community will be able to pick out a newly refurbished bike and helmet.

“A lot of times once a child outgrows a bike it just sits in the garage collecting dust,” said Allison Coughlin, President of Burley Design. “This is a wonderful opportunity for us to recycle bikes, clean them up like new, and give to kids in our community who will use it for years!”

Coughlin spearheaded the creation of the local Eugene and Springfield chapter to give children in the area a like-new bike. In addition, Burley provided warehouse space to collect and repair the donated bikes. Since October, Burley employees have worked to meticulously clean and repair the used bikes before they are donated on the 8th.

Free Bikes for Kidz is a nonprofit organization dedicated to helping all kids ride into a happier, healthier childhood by providing bikes to those in need. Bikes are more than just toys for children; they promote a sense of independence and responsibility and ignite a sense of freedom, harnessing a love of the outdoors. Burley’s vision of building the next generation of riders, adventurers, and explorers aligns perfectly with Free Bikes for Kidz and together, the organizations look forward to giving back to their community and fostering relationships with children and families in the area.
