Bikes are a great form of transportation that people use to get work, transit, school and services. Keeping people and bikes moving is our mission, and our Community Bike Program helps us do that!
This program is for low income teens and adults who are referred to us by other agencies or by shop staff.
Participants may get a bike voucher from a partner agency, or apply to the program (below) and complete theses steps:
- Make a Bike Request: Complete a request form (below) and we’ll contact you to schedule the next steps.
- Attend a Bike Class: Participants attend a short Fix-A-Flat course (offered two times a month on Sundays) in our shop that covers fixing flats and maintaining the chain.
- Volunteer: Participants spend 3 hours volunteering in the shop. Participants can choose from a list of bike/shop-related tasks that best suits their abilities.
Every bike comes with a lock and helmet to keep you and your new bike safe.
Funding for the Community Bike Program is provided by generous people who donate to Sharing Wheels and by supporting organizations.
