Richmond’s Bicycle Cooperative

The six-member Richmond’s Bicycle Cooperative teaches low-income people the skills needed to maintain and restore a bicycle.  It provides a community space with tools and recycled parts available to the public, empowering those without a car or unable to afford bus fare, to travel sustainably, safely, and affordably. Members volunteer about eight hours a week and are able to teach about twenty persons.  Revenue generated from selling refurbished bikes goes toward operating costs and helps fund a books donation nonprofit.
