About Us

This is the BF Community Bike Project, a volunteer run non-profit bike shop, founded by Bonnie Anderson in 2012. The project’s mission is to provide community access to reclaimed bicycles and bike repair skills, encouraging safe bicycling as a means of affordable transportation, self sufficiency and overall wellness.  The donated bikes are cleaned up, restored and then sold at low cost. Hundreds of refurbished affordable bikes have been put back on the streets - many of them “earned”.

 

 

In July of 2016 we moved to our new location in the heart of the community at the corner of Henry & Atkinson Streets.

Once you step inside, you’re in for a treat!  Over 300 bicycles live there - most were donated, some have owners and all are either waiting to be repaired or ready to ride.  Shelves full of bike parts, lots of wheels and a wall of tools surround the work area, where volunteers tinker away giving new life to the old bicycles.

Workshops in bike maintenance and repair are offered periodically during the year, both for school groups and adults.  Students from local schools and youth clubs have spent many hours in the shop, learning everything from flat fixing to the full overhaul!  But you don’t have to come with a group in order to gain the skills.  Each week there are Open Shop sessions, where you can bring in your own bike to work on, with or without assistance.  Repairs and tuneups are also offered at reasonable rates, and volunteer hours may be applied to offset the cost.
