Bike to the Future

A bike is more than two wheels on the trail – it’s what connects many people to better jobs! With a free bicycle, helmet, lock, and bike light, an hour walk to work becomes a fiteen-minute bike ride, which opens up many more job opportunities throughout Columbia. Bike to the Future is a civic and faith partnership providing free bicycle transportation in Columbia and contacting Love INC is the first step to transportation independence. Email us at office@columbialoveinc.org. for more information.

And if you’ve shifted gears and are not riding your bike anymore, BTTF will give it a tune up and a new home. Call us at 256-7662 to donate your bike today. Or click here to donate financially.
