Take the online bicycle safety test at BikeEd.org. Pass every section with at least a 70%. Do not complete the test if you have not completed and passed each section. Please select Kansas City as your region when you register on this site.
Take a picture or a screen shot of the test summary page that shows your name and test results. Text or email the picture to Revolve: 816-835-3310 or firstname.lastname@example.org. Include your full name and your height. There are two locations: 5509 Troost in Kansas City MO and 554 Central Ave in Kansas City KS. Tell us which location you prefer.
Someone from Revolve will respond and let you know when we have a bike available.

You will be fitted with a bicycle and helmet. Locks are available for purchase for $15.
The bikes typically available in the Earn-a-Bike Program are refurbished bikes from non name brand manufacturers such as Huffy, Roadmaster, Murray, Next, Free Spirit, Magna, etc. ON AVERAGE, PARTICIPANTS REPORT INVESTING 2 TO 2.5 HOURS TO COMPLETE THE TEST, not the 4 that is suggested on www.bikeed.org. It can be a challenge to accommodate individuals taller than 6ft in the Earn-a-Bike Program. We’ll put you on the tallest bike we have at the time you complete the program.
