Cycling Into Hearts and Homes
REALTORS® Eric and Janet Baucom provide kids in foster care with a
sense of freedom, personal control, and fun.
For most kids, getting a new bike is almost a rite of passage in their families. But for those who have spent a big chunk of their childhood in the foster care system, having a bike of their own is usually the stuff of dreams, hard to imagine in a life often defined by instability and tumult.
Eric and Janet Baucom are committed to making the dream a reality for foster children in and around their Ventura, Calif., community. The simple gift of a bike has the ability to make a kid’s life better, they say. In addition to providing recreation and fun, biking is an expression of control and freedom that’s likely missing in their lives. Read article

COVID-19 / Coronavirus Response
We have received a number of requests for immediate needs for bicycles for foster youth and low income kids in Ventura County. Help us provide bikes to keep our local kids safe and healthy.
What We Do
Project Bicycle Love is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that exists to provide new bicycles and helmets to kids and youth in the Foster Care System, Group Homes, Transitional Living homes or other at risk situations.
In addition to providing bikes for foster teens in response to needs arising from the COVID-19 crisis, we are also currently working to provide bikes for 50 low income kids in our local school district.
We are especially passionate about providing bicycles to teens and youth living in groups homes or who are about to age out of the “system”. They generally do not have a driver’s license or vehicle of their own. A good bicycle can provide transportation to school & work and provide a sense of responsibility and freedom.
Give a Bike, Change a Life!
Remember the joy of receiving your first bicycle?
Give a child in foster care or transitional living that gift this Christmas. For some it will be a childhood memory they will never forget. For others it will provide their only means of transportation.
Project Bicycle Love collects and purchases brand new bikes and helmets for foster kids of all ages. Every bike collected will be given to a local child in need.
