West Town Bikes is a community bicycle learning center. We offer youth programs here at the shop and accross the city, bicycle mechanics workshops and classes and special events to members of the community. We also provide creative workspace for special bicycle building, utilitarian human powered design, kinetic art, advocacy projects, and all sorts of constructive creation.
We empower youth of all abilities and circumstances to build stronger, healthier communities. Respecting their diversity in culture, identity, and opinion, we develop creativity, self-sufficiency and economic opportunity through hands-on education and business development. As a youth development organization our Programs use bikes as a tool for positive transformation of individuals and communities.
