League of Michigan Bicyclists is proud to host the online home of Share-a-Bike, an independent organization.

The Share-A-Bike Program is a community bike project operating from the campus of the Unitarian Universalist Church of Greater Lansing at 5509 S Pennsylvania Ave, Lansing MI. Our program began in 1994 and since that time our volunteer staff has inspected and repaired thousands of used bicycles donated to us and we have returned them to the community of adults and children we serve.

To qualify for a bike, each person should bring us a letter of recommendation or voucher from a human service agency, religious organization, school or an employer stating that they are in need of a bike. The letter must be on the organization’s letterhead and be delivered in person.

We will properly size the person to a bike and make size adjustments accordingly. For that reason, we will not give a bike to those who are not present. The bikes are distributed on a first-come, first-served basis while supplies last on that day.

We are open every  Saturday morning, 9 to 11 a.m., April-October, and during winter months, 9 to 11 a.m. on the 2nd Saturday of the month from (November-March) We are closed on Saturdays of the holiday weekends of Memorial and Labor Day and the Saturday celebrated with the 4th of July.

Our program depends on donations from the community. Your donated bicycle will be inspected, repaired and put in stock to be given away. A cash donation will go a long way to help buy helmets or parts. We will happily accept your donations on the Saturdays we are open.
