Working Bikes Cooperative information
This nonprofit group trawls local landfills and scrap yards for junked bikes, then brings them back to its warehouse and refurbishes them. Half get sold in the storefront shop; proceeds enable the group to ship the rest to developing countries. It’s a great deal – you’ll get a sturdy, well-oiled machine for a bargain price (around $200) compared to regular bike shops.
