Welcome to our newest line of products!

We are now offering "Ride-able" bikes for those who are looking for a bargain.

Unlike other bikes in our store, these bikes are not refurbished (prices vary between $40 - $150). Every "Ride-able" bike comes with one hour of free bench coaching. We will help you diagnose any existing issues and show you how to fix them. "Ride-able" bikes are sold "as-is" and are not refundable.

Every purchase at the Bicycle Collective helps us to provide bicycles, repair help, and educational programs to adults and children in need.

We are very happy to share our 2018 numbers with you. Here's what we accomplished together. Thank you!

Our Goodwill Bikes program provides free bicycles to anyone who can’t afford to purchase one. Goodwill Bikes may be earned through 6 hours of volunteer service.  Find out how to volunteer here.
