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.
