A Brief Intro
Our Bike for a Kid program began in 2012 when we started selling FLO wheels. We wanted to find a way to give back, and giving bikes to kids just felt like the right move for us. The program started small, but our first bike drop was a huge success. We wanted to expand the program in 2013 and did so by creating a journey we called our “Road to Kona.”
Here is a quick video explaining how we used our “Road to Kona” journey to expand our Bike for Kid program.
