Participants may receive one bike per year from Key City Bike through the Earn-A-Bike program.
Code of ConductAll program participants are subject to Key City Bike’s Shop Rules and Policies when they are in our spaces. Anyone acting disrespectful and/or not adhering to these basic rules will be asked to leave.
MinorsAnyone age 14 and up may receive a bike from Key City Bike through our Earn-A-Bike Program. An adult must accompany minors at all times. Key City Bike may create exceptions to this policy on the basis of merit, at our discretion.
Bicycle SelectionBicycles are chosen for participants based on the information they fill out about their height, physical restrictions, and what they plan to use the bike for. We are limited in the bicycles we have by what we receive as donations--therefore we may not be able to honor all needs and requests through the program. If at the Graduation, none of the bikes we have selected actually fits a participant, we will strive to identify a bike that would work, fix it up and have it ready for the participant as soon as possible. We will call when the bike is ready for pick-up.
The bike you are given will be in working order, however, if your new Earn-a-Bike has mechanical problems down the road, we will show you how to make repairs to your bike. Your bike is your responsibility. Please take advantage of our open shop hours to make repairs on your bike yourself, or you may pay for service at any local bike shop.
We will not install accessories on the bike. We will remove accessories that may come in on donated bikes in order to be fair to all EAB participants. If you prefer a cushier seat, a front basket, or different handlebars, that is up to you to pay for and install on your bike in your own time.

Key City Bike does not assume any responsibility for or obligation to provide financial assistance or other assistance, including but not limited to medical, health or disability insurance in the event of injury or illness.
Medial Treatment. I release and forever discharge Key City Bike from any claim whatsoever which arises or may hereafter arise on account of any first aid, treatment, or service rendered in connection with my activities or involvement with Key City Bike. If I should suffer injury, I hereby specifically authorize a representative or volunteer associated with Key City Bike to use their discretion to have me receive medical care including, if necessary, being transported to a medical facility and I take full legal and financial responsibility for this action and for any care or treatment I receive.

Survivance.
