We support bicyclists and create healthy bicycle-friendly communities through activities, advocacy, and education.
The Bicycle Tree’s purpose is to enable people to use bicycles safely and comfortably to move through their communities and beyond. We teach mechanical skills and traffic safety fundamentals through classes, hands-on repair activities, and bike rides. We reduce waste by applying effort and skill to bicycles and parts that others might throw away. We make good bikes accessible by selling and donating used bicycles and parts. We serve as a community center for bicyclists, connecting bicycle users to each other and to the broader bicycle advocacy movement. We seek to strengthen the bonds within the bicycling community by working on and enjoying bicycles with people of diverse cultures, genders, ages, economic levels, ethnicities, athletic abilities, and other characteristics.
