Community Bicycle Organizations

The list below uses the criteria found in the old Bicycle Organization Organization Project for what constitutes a community bike shop, namely:

  • Non-profit bicycle organizations
  • Bike shops that are accessible to people without money
  • Shops that have an educational focus, teaching others how to fix bikes
  • Shops that are volunteer run
  • Organizations that ship bikes to communities in other countries.
  • Shops that provide free or low-cost services to the community.
  • Organizations that recycle bicycles and parts




Maps of Community Bicycle Organizations

Please note: the maps are not synced with each other or the list on this page. Both maps are international.

Here is the current, open-collaboration Google map, entitled "Earth's Community Bicycle Organizations". It is probably more comprehensive for North America. The comments associated with the map contain information about the organization and management of the map and its list; you can edit the map to include, or correct, information for your local bike collectives.

Here is the open street map, which includes all French ateliers (workshops) and is probably more comprehensive for Europe. You can find more information about this map here.

Here is a Re~Cycle's searchable map of UK bike re-use projects - bit more than on this site.

Here is the google map for the People's bicycle workshops (ciclofficine popolari) of Rome.
