1304bikes is a collectively-run non-profit organization in Raleigh, NC, committed to getting discarded bikes repaired, refurbished, and into the hands of those in our community who need them. We do this mainly through our Earn-a-Bike program in which individuals fulfill volunteer hours in the shop, and then get assistance in building their own bike. (Our emphasis is on education; we do not build bikes and give them away.) This program is open to anyone wishing to participate, free of charge. Our extensive stock of parts and specialized professional-quality tools is also available to anyone wishing to repair their own bike during shop hours. Although the Earn-a-Bike program is our primary focus, we occasionally offer instructional workshops, host ride events, and make donations to other local organizations. Volunteers are needed for a large assortment of shop-related tasks, and all skill levels are welcome. Donations of bikes, parts, tools, or funds are gratefully accepted and tax-deductible.
