We carefully select the persons who receive a bike, with the help of local institutions, organizations and/or individuals. Some of our requirements include that the persons don’t already have alternative means of transportation nor can they afford public transportation (when available). People who just want to get a bicycle because its free, will be eliminated quickly from our selection process.

We concentrate on Third World Countries.

The individuals need a legitemate reason why they should receive a bike. Each case is evaluated and reviewed on an individual basis.

Wheels 4 Life reserves the rights to the final decision of the bicycle recipients.

Wheels 4 LIfe does not discriminate by race, religion or politics.
