Community Bikes: Charlottesville's Non-profit Bike Shop
Charlottesville Community Bikes is a non-profit bicycle shop that works with Virginia Organizing (VO) to promote environmentally-sound transportation, recycle bicycles, and make cycling accessible in Charlottesville, VA.
As a local non-profit organization, we rely strictly on volunteers and funding from private individuals and organizations. Although we primarily work with recycled materials, we do spend money on consumables with include things like bicycles tubes, cables, and brake pads. We encourage monetary donations from all that use the shop.
Charlottesville Community Bikes is a program-based operation. Programs include Open Shop time, bicycle maintenance and repair classes, kids’ bike rodeo, adult education, etc. During Open Shop hours, you are welcome to come in and use one of our repair stands for a small fee. If you need help, our shop manager or a volunteer will be available to help you learn new repair techniques and skills.
If you are interested in starting a program, please contact us.
