Moving UP and OUT!
A challenge and an opportunity...
WE MUST MOVE!
This summer, Gearin' Up Bicycles must vacate its current location. We see this as an opportunity to find a much needed larger space, increase our impact, and reach more DC youth. However, we cannot fund this move without support from YOU- our loyal day one's, our friends, our customers, our neighbors, our volunteers and our fellow bike nerds. Please consider making a tax-deductible donation to help us reach our $75,000 goal!

Recently, Gearin' Up has struggled to host Youth Nights due to space constraints in our shop. The move will allow 15+ youth to inhabit a new shop space and develop strong mechanic skills every week.
