BikeAthens Bike Recycling Program

The BikeAthens Bike Recycling Program (BRP), a cooperative venture with local social support agencies, distributes reconditioned bikes to individuals in the Athens community who are under-served by private and public transportation. Along with a refurbished bike, clients are given a new helmet, lights, and a lock. The non-profit bike shop, located at 1075 W. Broad St., also offers sliding scale repairs to members of the community who rely on their bikes for transportation. In 2016, BikeAthens launched a weekly Fix Your Own Bike clinic open to the public on Thursday nights. In 2021, they repaired and donated 136 adult bikes and 50 kids' bikes. They have refurbished thousands of bicycles since the program started in 2001.
