History

Newark Bike Project, Inc. (www.NewarkBikeProject.org, established 2011), a non-profit all-volunteer community bike shop serving the college town of Newark, Delaware, and surrounding areas. Now in our fourth -- and first permanent -- shop space, NBP occupies a 2,000 sq ft shop open six days per week in the downtown and University area (see website for updated hours). We have approximately 50 volunteers who re-purpose upwards of 50 donated bicycles per month.
Bicycles are for sale to anyone, with most ranging in price from $70 to $150. We also assist with approximately 100 walk-in repairs per month, and graduate a dozen or so new mechanics from our training each season. We have a strong focus on community, including Womens & LGBTQ nights, regular music & performing arts open mic events, a youth program, and we host community dinners for a farm-to-table food co-op.
We're always looking for new volunteers, leaders, and ideas to streamline our shop operations, grow our reach, and collaborate with community, municipal, and university parties.
