    Roll It Forward

    Roll it Forward collects, repairs, and donates used bikes to non-profit community groups from all of Boston’s neighborhoods. One goal is to combat obesity and diabetes in kids and adults by increasing physical activity with bike ownership. Another goal is to introduce individuals and communities to the transformative benefits of using a bicycle for transportation, exercise, and fun. Over 1,700 bikes have already been donated, and we are always seeking more bike donations. Visit the program page to learn more about donating.
