Why isn't this organization rated?
This organization is not eligible to be rated by Charity Navigator because it is not required to file the full IRS Form 990. It is required to file a form 990-N. This form provides some information, but it lacks the level of data we require to issue a rating. Visit the Methodology section of our site to learn about our criteria for evaluating charities.
What does it mean that this organization isn’t rated?
It simply means that the organization doesn't meet our criteria. A lack of a rating does not indicate a positive or negative assessment by Charity Navigator.
In accordance with our policy for removing CN Advisories, Charity Navigator removed the High Concern CN Advisory for the Bike Bald Group on March 1, 2017 because the issue that prompted the CN Advisory has been resolved. Specifically:
Bike Bald group removed Charity Navigator's 4 star logo from its website and replaced it with a general Charity Navigator logo.
Charity Navigator had published a High Concern CN Advisory on the Bike Bald Group because we became aware of the following information in connection with this charity:
It has come to our attention that Bike Bald Group is inappropriately using Charity Navigator’s 4-star logo when we either do not rate, or have not rated this charity before. Using this logo is a privilege reserved for charities that have received our 4-star rating. Bike Bald Group is not and has never been rated by Charity Navigator and therefore has never received a 4-star rating. For this reason, we have issued a High Concern CN Advisory on Bike Bald Group.
