More about Neighborhood Bike Works after the jump…

Neighborhood Bike Works is a non-profit youth development organization in West Philadelphia serving neighborhood youth from 8 to 18. Our main shop is at St. Mary’s Church, 40th and Locust Walk, on the University of Pennsylvania campus, our Haddington neighborhood shop is at 60th and Vine. Since 1996 we have offered classes on bike repair and bike safety after school, on weekends, and in the summer. By completing a series of classes and fixing up used bikes donated by the community students can earn a bike for themselves with a helmet and a lock. In addition to providing a positive activity for young people we introduce them to the fun, the health benefits, and the freedom that come with cycling in the city.

We provide services to the community as a whole in the form of bike safety checks at block parties and other events, valet bike parking at events such as the Wachovia race, and through our adult programs which include the “Bike Church” adult bike repair sessions and adult classes in bike repair and urban riding skills . Many of these communit! y progra ms provide a positive way for our youth to give back to the community.
