The Community Bike Shop locations are the tools the Collective uses to accomplish our mission statement.
At these locations bikes are used bikes are donated, refurbished by volunteers learning how to work on bikes, and then redistributed through our Bikes for Goodwill Organizations referral program. Donations of kids bikes and the Community Bike Shops are also used for our Earn-a-Bike programs and holiday bike drives.
Last but not least, we open the Community Bike Shops up to the public for DIY nights, where people personal projects like buying a bike (or volunteering for a bike), finding parts, or getting help working on a bike abound.
