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

Community bicycle projects do many different things. Some use bicycles to change society, the economy, or the environment. Some have community bike shops. Some promote bicycle use and making their communities into places where riding is easier, more inclusive, safer, and more fun. The list above uses the criteria found in the old Bicycle Organization Organization Project for what constitutes a community bike shop. The bike project need not meet any these criteria. Rather, it is a general list of qualities which are common among many bicycle projects.

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. It is not clear whether would-be contributors can edit the map to include or correct information for local bike collectives already on the map or add new ones.

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.
