The mission of Community Bikes is to enable people and communities to better themselves by providing access to bicycles for those who can’t afford them.

CB serves young people and adults in central New York and aims to reach out globally where there is a need.

CB works to encourage a life habit of cycling and to explore creative ways to use bicycles as a bridge to achieve broader goals.

CB uses resources primarily donated by the community, recycling and reusing thousands of bicycles, and relies on the contributions of volunteers.

CB believes in the value and importance of the process itself for all those who share in it, from those who donate to those who volunteer to those who receive.
