Making Cycling Possible for all of green bay

Green bay bicycle collective (GBBC)


In downtown Green Bay, Wisconsin, near the Railyard District, sits a garage full of bikes. But it’s not just any garage with a few bikes in it. It’s a fully functioning community bike shop that’s home to the Green Bay Bicycle Collective. It’s where mechanics wrench on bicycles, aspiring cyclists come to learn how to build and maintain bikes, and local youth learn bike safety. It’s where community advocates meet to plan new ways to make cycling more accessible to Green Bay. Most of all, it’s a gathering place—kids, teens, and adults alike who love bicycles or just want to hang out are welcome here. 

If you share our passion for bicycling and the Green Bay community, we hope you’ll join us in growing our local bike culture and making cycling possible for every Green Bay resident.

improving access to safe cycling in green bay

More people are bicycling today than ever. Yet, many remain off of bikes due to safety concerns, lagging bicycle infrastructure, or lack of access to an operational bike, according to PlacesForBikes Community Surveys. In the most recent survey, Green Bay residents rated their feelings of safety on a bicycle as 43 out of 100 (100 being safest).

At the Green Bay Bicycle Collective, we aim to break down barriers to cycling in the Greater Green Bay, Wisconsin area. Join us in our mission to bring fun, safe cycling to our community and get more butts on bike seats!

what does the green bay bicycle collective do?

We’re a registered 501(c)(3) non-profit in Green Bay dedicated to community outreach, crime prevention, and youth development. Here’s how we do it:

We work with local officials to improve bicycle infrastructure, and we partner with local organizations to provide bikes to those who need them.

We teach area residents what they need to know to enjoy cycling safely and on their own, including basic bike maintenance and repair.
