The Cola Town Bike Collective continues to make an impact throughout the Midlands community through our various programs designed to help provide and maintain transportation and access to transportation through bicycles and our shop services as well as community events, partnerships with other charities, and public services such as our Sprocket app and our bicycle repair network of repair stands.
In order to continue our services to the community, we continue to have a huge demand for corporate and individual sponsorships and donations.
Looking for ways to help?
There are always ways that individuals can contribute to our community, from volunteering, donating, and membership opportunities.
Become a Member
As a nonprofit organization, we rely on membership dues to continue our mission. Becoming a member is the best way to support us. We’re pleased to offer our members perks like complimentary tune-ups, CTBC swag, and tickets to exclusive events.
Donate or purchase a bike
Sales are the lifeblood of our community bike shop. Our inventory is largely donated bicycles that our volunteers have cleaned and rehabilitated in our shop. The majority of these bikes are provided to local folks in need at low to no cost: we partner with multiple other nonprofit organizations in the Columbia area to identify folks in our community that need help securing reliable transportation. Our bikes help them get to work and back home again. The remaining bikes in our inventory are sold to the general public at relatively low cost. These sales are key - they help us keep the lights on and our partnerships in play.
You can also support us with donations of your time. We need volunteers to help with everything from wrenching on bikes to organizing and running events. You don’t need to be a mechanic to volunteer with us! We have volunteer opportunities for folks with all skillsets.
