What is a community bicycle project?

From collectives that use the bicycle as an excuse to change society, economy and the environment. Non-profit groups that have a community bike shops, cooperatives and other projects that promote the use of the bicycle and that come together to turn their communities into a place where riding is easier, more inclusive, safer and more fun. The list below uses the criteria found in the old Bicycle Organization Organization Project for what constitutes a community bike shop. The bike project need not meet all these criteria. Rather, it is a general list of qualities which are common among many bicycle projects.

  • Bike shops that are accessible to people without money
  • Organizations that recycle bicycles and parts
  • Shops that have an educational focus, teaching others how to fix bikes
  • Shops that are volunteer run

  • Organizations that ship bikes to communities in other countries.
  • Shops that provide free or low-cost services to the community.
  • Non-profit bicycle organizations
