Why the Central Ninth district

Bridging west and east

Although close to downtown, Central Ninth is one of the City’s most underserved neighborhoods. Being located within the Central Ninth Neighborhood creates easy access and limits the barriers faced by young people who need the Bicycle Collective’s programming the most.

This area has no bicycle shops or service repair centers.

Nurturing active commuting and community

Bicycle Collective will be a beacon of community and creativity embedded within the Central Ninth Neighborhood. We want to be the catalyst and the driver of building a community we are proud to be a part of that is fostering a love for biking, active transportation, and cultural diversity.

An ideal location with easy access

One block from a TRAX stop that services all three Trax lines, making it extremely convenient for any of our community partners and clients to get to our location. We are in close proximity to the VOA Homeless Youth Resource Center, Catholic Community Services, First Step House, International Rescue Committee (IRC), and numerous other non-profit providers.
