** Starting Memorial Day weekend through July, we will be closed on Fridays.
The Bicycle Thrift Shop is now open on 89 Thompson St., Unit H.
We will also be open one weekend day per month to provide additional opportunities to stop by.
The goal of the shop is to provide bicycles and gear to our community at an affordable rate. Providing transportation, recreation and a source of fitness to a population who would not normally have access to cycling.
We need your help to make it happen.
Here is how it works: You donate your cycling gear, used bikes etc. We invest the time and energy to breathe new life into them and sell them to the general public at an affordable rate. This will provide funding for the program, keeping overhead low and providing more opportunities for our community’s youth. In the future we plan on offering structured kid’s mechanic classes. In the meantime, kids are welcome to come in and get some hands on supervised experience, working on their own bikes.
Consider donating your “dusty but not rusty” used gear, and then swing by for a visit.
You can also donate at REI Asheville, Motion Makers, Liberty Bikes, Sycamore Cycles, Pro Bikes and Ski Country Sports. (if you are interested in being a donation location, contact us)
If you don’t have gear to donate, please consider helping us cover the cost of operation so that we can offer kid’s mechanics classes free of charge.
We are a community based shop. While we won’t be taking in bicycles for overhauls and repairs, we want to provide a place where the general public, with a focus on kids, can come in at your leisure and learn how to work on your bike.
