WHAT WE DO

Young people come to BYKE Collective to learn mechanics and fix bicycles. When youth come to BYKE they can fix their own bicycles, or earn credit for parts/bikes by helping others, helping the shop, or on shop projects. Youth facilitate meetings everyday to discuss  their goals, accomplishments and frustrations, as well as issues faced in and outside of the shop. We encourage ownership, accountability and appreciation. 

Empower Bike Culture

BYKE is dedicated to empowering and uplifting bike culture. The way we bike should be celebrated.

Workforce Development

Any 14-24 year old who demonstrates an ability to not only fix bicycles, but can also teach to fix, show positive role modeling, develop leadership skills, and demonstrate commitment is eligible for a summer internship. Young people who stand out during the summers are eligible to work during the school year as well.

Repair Bikes

BYKE provides a safe space for young people to maintain and repair their bicycles. The staff and volunteers of BYKE are ready to help solve any bike-related issue that may come up so people have access to safe, reliable transportation.

Earn Credit

Young people can earn parts they want or need, or even entire bicycles with our credit system. Credit is earned by positively contribute to out BYKE community: helping others fix their bicycles, working on shop projects, or learning specific skills.

Build Community

At the end of every shop day, BYKE members conduct a youth-facilitated meet to reflect on their goals, frustrations, and accomplishments. We have a space to discuss issues young people face inside and outside the shop. We end our meetings with thank yous and words of affirmation.

Group Rides

Youth plan group rides around the city, providing an opportunity to practice safe ridership in traffic and get to know new areas in Baltimore.
