What we do
Caring about the environment and supporting people in our community is important to us. We collect and refurbish unwanted bicycles that are donated by individuals and institutions, then give them to
people who are in need of
transportation or have limited accessibility to a healthy activity.
Knowledge empowers and enables success. Programs are offered to keep you riding safely by teaching bicycle maintenance as well as opportunities to "Earn a Bike" through "Sweat Equity". We also provide assistance to those who access our free or low cost tool library for personal bike repairs.
The Brookhaven Bike Co-op offers a welcoming place for bicycle enthusiasts to gather together. Feel free to come, learn, volunteer or just hang out and play a game of pool. Perhaps if you're feeling crafty you can even turn an old tire into a belt!
