The Bike Kitchen

What is it?

The Bike Kitchen is a non-profit social enterprise created to provide a welcoming and safe space for students, seniors, women and all other community members to learn how to maintain, repair, and build their own bicycles. Youth under 16 are welcome to participate when accompanied by a parent or adult guardian.

Our Earn-a-Bike program is providing opportunities for low-income youth to refurbish a donated bike, which will become their own once it is in safe working condition. Through Earn-a-Bike, youth become invested in the care and maintenance of a bicycle that they built themselves, and gain a sense of accomplishment and empowerment in having the skills to be independent.

The Bike Kitchen is gratefully accepting donations of bicycles for refurbishing and eventual return to the community.

Community Impact

The Bike Kitchen aims to teach people how to repair bicycles and to put safe working bicycles back into the community at an affordable cost. We engage, educate, and empower individuals by providing the tools and the knowledge for them to access affordable transportation via recycled and refurbished bicycles. We promote a positive culture of wrenching, environmental responsibility, and volunteering in which all members of our community will treat each other with dignity and respect.

All profits raised are used to fund our programming and outreach in the community.
