    The gifting of a bike just scratches the surface of the mission of the Bicycle Collective. Every person who receives a bike has access to the Collective’s dedicated volunteer crew who teach everything from bike maintenance to bike safety. 

    But the mission is much larger than just gifting bikes. At its heart, the organization hopes to transform a city by transforming individual lives.

I have been volunteering or working in non-profit community shops since 2008.  I used to ride my bike or walk to high school to avoid the massive traffic issues which has lead to a life long passion of riding.  I really found the joy of working on bikes and teaching through my interactions with non-profit community shops I found in Los Angeles, San Francisco, Santa Cruz and Portland.  I truly enjoy creating learning moments and seeing the joys of patrons learning and applying themselves to get their own bikes working.  I really enjoy teaching and have enjoyed creating positive impacts on peoples lives.
