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 the bargain price of about $100.

If you're planning on renting a bike for more than a few days, consider buying one of the co-op's two-wheelers instead. When you’re finished, you can donate it back.
