The LIFT Bike Project

In a place like Cambridge, bikes are a huge hit. A fun hobby and great source of exercise, bicycles serve as a great mode of transportation: cheap, efficient, environmentally friendly, and reasonably enjoyable for at least half the year. Now, bike enthusiasts can garner some good karma as well by volunteering with The LIFT Bike Project. This is a program to give homeless and low income community members free bicycles, helmets, and locks. They need help

  • refurbishing bikes
  • collecting donated bikes
  • advertising the program
  • building a bike safety training program

Contact Liz at e.powers@post.harvard.edu for details. No experience necessary!

Even if you’re not at liberty to participate, we urge you to take part in the cycling season! Bikes are a fantastic way for residents and tourists alike to see Cambridge. If you’re looking to purchase, considering upping the green quotient of your choice and buying a (gently) used bike from Quad Bikes.
