1000 Bikes Foundation

The 1000 Bikes Foundation is a not-for-profit organization which is dedicated to putting a bike in the hands of 1000 foster youth and their families in communities across the United States. The 1000 Bikes Foundation is more than just a charity; it is a movement that creates a treadmark in every city it rides through. The 1000 Bikes Foundation was established in April 2010 by Michael Bowers, a New York native who grew up in various foster homes. An avid biker and cycling enthusiast, Mike, or CoolAssMike as he is know in riding circles, had participated in “rides” throughout California, New York and Miami for years.
