Charlottesville’s Nonprofit Bike Hub
Charlottesville Community Bikes is a nonprofit bicycle shop that operates through Virginia Organizing (VO) to promote environmentally-sound transportation, recycle bicycles, and make cycling accessible in Charlottesville, VA.
Our efforts are currently centered around two main programs- refurbishing donated bikes and empowering people to work on their own bikes.
Adult Bikes (26”+ tires) that are donated to us get fixed-up and road-ready before being sent back out in the community for a set donation rate or for free through a voucher program we offer to our many local nonprofits partners, including The Haven, International Rescue Committee, and more. Every Saturday we give away our Kids’ Bikes (<26” wheels) for children age 13 and under.
We also offer access to hands-on guidance and most every tool you could need to work on your bike. We ask for a donation of $5/hr to use our equipment, but really we’re just excited to help keep people riding.
