Bicycle Collective - Community Bike Shops
The Community Bike Shop locations are the tools that the Collective uses to fulfill 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.
Frequently Asked Questions:

Q: When can you accept donations?
A: We accept bicycle and parts donations in any condition whenever our shop is open.
Q: Do you do bike tune-ups?
A: No, but we can show you how to do it yourself (DIY). We provide the the tools and know-how you need. Depending on avaliability, we also have used bicycles and parts for sale.
Q: Do you sell bikes?
A: Yes we do. Bikes are donated and worked on by volunteers after which they get a final check and are either given away through one of our programs or sold at an open shop night. Road bikes and cruisers are in the highest demand, so we don't get that many donated and they don't stay on the rack for more than a day or so.
Q: I am unable to pay for a bicycle, am I able to volunteer for one?
A: Of course! You can volunteer ahead of time at a rate of five dollars per volunteer hour for used parts and/or a bike.
Q: Do you buy or trade bikes?
A: No, we do not buy or trade bikes nor do we sell them on consignment. No exceptions.
