#BikeMatchNOLA is a way to connect people in need of a bicycle with bikes donated by other individuals
Bike Easy Staff and volunteers will review all submitted requests and make matches based on: proximity, bike fit, and need. Matched parties will receive an email from Bike Easy, prompting them to arrange the exchange.
GUIDELINES FOR PARTICIPATING
- If you feel sick, have a fever or cough, refrain from participating in #BikeMatchNOLA
- For donations: Ensure the bike is in working order, pump up the tires, check the brakes, and make sure the chain runs smoothly while pedaling. Sanitize the bike thoroughly before donation, especially the handlebars, shifters, brakes, and seat.
- Once you are matched, we ask that you arrange the pick-up in an outdoor public area.
