This program is what puts the project on the map! Anyone, at anytime, can come down and volunteer three hours of hard labor around the shop. In return they will be allowed to BUILD a bike for FREE using our collection of frames and gently used parts! We have a constant flow of donated bikes to choose from! They are in different levels of disrepair; from frame to functional, and they just need some loving (and guided) attention to get them back on the road, and you off the bus! So come down and help us out for a few hours, and then start to put together a well earned set wondering wheels! ** Earn-A-Bike Volunteer hours must be completed during week days.
Are you in the market for a new set of wheels, but don't want to fork out hundreds of dollars for the latest thang? Come down to the Projects and have a look at our refurbished beauuties at discount prices! We take the best-of-the-best donated bicycles and fix 'em up for re-sale to keep the bike project open and running smoothly. Remember, we are volunteer run so all proceeds go back to the Project! Depending on the week, you can find a great deal ($40-$200) on our very decent, worth inspection, bike collection. So come, and GO Fish at the Bloomington Bike Project! You might be surprised at what you find!
Hey! Do you have some extra time? The Bloomington Bike Project is ALWAYS in need of volunteers. Don't let the title fool you, you don't need to be from Bloomington. You don't need to know a lot about bikes (although a little knowledge or willingness to learn is helpful). And, you don't have to commit every weekend for the rest of the decade -- or even the rest of the month, while we are at it. We want bodies that want to help bodies crank on bikes, and provide a safe place to do so at both of our locations! So just swing by, pick up a wrench, and say you want to volunteer! Say it real loud, if you want. We'll let you.
At the Bloomington Community Bike Project we take just about anything. If you have an old clunker laying around, have recently traded up, or have uncovered a gold mine of old parts in your garage --- we need 'em. Please bring your donations by during Shop Hours, or Contact us with any questions. Thank you! Someone will gain a lot from your generosity.
