The Bike Works is a community-supported nonprofit that promotes creative and active lifestyles, self reliance and sustainability in southwest New Mexico.
We operate a community workshop where we use the bicycle as the medium for hands-on education. Our programs include Do-It-Yourself Tool Stations, a Tool Library, Repair & Maintenance Workshops, an Earn-A-Bike Program, a Mobile Bike Shop, ReCycled Bike Art, and Community Rides. We encourage the recycling of bicycles to keep them out of the landfills and on the roads. We also focus on Workforce Development by teaching hard skills such as technical training and soft skills such as communication and working together to visitors of the shop. As one of our avenues to bring in funds for supplies and operating expenses, we offer Reconditioned Bicycles for sale. You dream it, we can build it!
We are excited to announce our new fully operational downtown location at 914 N. Pope St. in Silver City. No more climbing the biggest hill in town to get to our shop! We are directly across the street from the future Food Coop location. We currently open Tuesday-Saturday, but will soon be expanding our hours as we grow our team and complete some finishing touches to the interior.
sed from GiveGrandly this year will support our Earn-A-Bike Program where kids work their way to bike ownership and to reboot our Weekend Bike Rides.
We're looking for volunteers to help in the shop and with these rides. Thanks for your support!
