What We Do

The Community Bike Project uses the bicycle to provide equitable and reliable transportation for everyone.
Volunteers and community activists in the Gifford Park Neighborhood started the Open Shop program in 2007 as a neighborhood-based community involvement program that focuses on the transportation needs of neighbors. The Bike Project continues to work to improve access to bicycles for everyone through Open Shop, Earn-a-Bike, and maintenance classes.
The Bike Project also serves as a social learning space that promotes youth mentorship, community building, and mechanical intelligence.

Interesting Info

Through refurbished bike sales, earn a bike, and bike giveaways we distribute over 600 bikes a year!
Over 80% of our Earn a Bike graduates are low income.
We want to increase our presence outside of the Gifford Park Neighborhood, helping under served neighborhoods in North and South Omaha.
