Bikes Not Bombs ships used bicycles to Ability Bikes where the mechanics rebuild, refurbish, and sell them at affordable prices to community members. In addition to shipping bikes, Bikes Not Bombs provides mechanics training and strategic advice to the worker-owners of the bike shop.
In November 2013, Bikes Not Bombs sent a field worker and retail shop employee, Derek McIntire to Ability Bikes to lead advanced mechanics workshops. He produced a 10-minute documentary which features interviews with Ability Bikes staff and community members.
Bikes Not Bombs will be selling tickets to their Bike-A-Thon happening June 8th. The Bike-A-Thon is an amazing ride that fundraises for their Youth Programs and International Programs. Hundreds of cyclists join together to ride for social justice while riding an optional 80 miles, 50 miles, or 10 miles. This ride tends to fill up quickly so don’t miss your chance to sign up early at this event!
