Working Bikes

Chicago's weather is getting warmer which means some of you will be getting that dusty bike out of storage. Don't have a bike or looking for a new-used bike? The Working Bikes Cooperative is a not-for-profit organization that takes unwanted bicycles from the waste stream in Chicago and repairs them for sale and charity. You can donate your bike, buy a bike, volunteer to help repair bikes or host a bike drive. Each year Working Bikes gives away over 500 bicycles and wheelchairs in the Chicago area and ships about 4,000 bikes to charity organizations within the Gulf Coast, Ghana, Tanzania, Angola, Cuba, Guatemala, and Peru.
