"BEST PLACE TO GET YOUR BIKE FIXED, GET A TOUR, AND MAKE NEW FRIENDS" - SOUTH SIDE WEEKLY
BRONZEVILLE BIKES envisions a Bronzeville in which bicycles are a key tool for fun, transport, and commerce, where every household has a bike and a trike, where business runs on bikes, and where residents and visitors alike use bikes to commute and connect.
- In 2013, we launched our popular "Celebrate Bronzeville" Rides, focusing on the themes of Art & Architecture, History, and Sustainability.
- In 2014, we launched the Bronzeville Bike Box, a 20-foot shipping container repurposed to fill a need for accessible and affordable bike sales and express repair services.
- In the Summer of 2015, we began our first "SisterCycles" women teaching women bicycle repair and maintenance class.
- In the Summer of 2016, we began a youth bike maintenance class; "Wheelz Club".
Bronzeville Bikes has received recognition from both the Metropolitan Planning and the Active Transportation Alliance for our efforts to increase the value of biking in the Bronzeville neighborhood and beyond.
