Mission Statement The Milwaukee Bicycle Collective is an all-volunteer, non-profit organization that provides a publicly accesible bicycle resource center for the city of Milwaukee. It is a place where bike construction and repair can happen in a creative and supportive environment and at an affordable cost.


At the Milwaukee Bicycle Collective we feel strongly about working to create a world where human powered transportation is the norm and available to everyone.
