Making Cycling Possible for all of green bay
Green bay bicycle collective (GBBC)
WELCOME TO GREEN BAY'S COMMUNITY BIKE SHOP.
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.
We provide safety in our programs and on community rides, and we offer bicycle safety courses from members certified by the League of American Bicyclists.
We promote positive relationships with our neighbors through group rides, events, and accessibility to cycling as a fun and sustainable activity.

MOBILE BIKE REPAIR
GBBC offers mobile bike repair services during the summer months for routine bike maintenance and to fix common problems, such as a broken chain. We visit area parks with supplies, parts, and friendly faces. Stop by one of the parks to see us!
community bike shop
Area youth and residents can stop by our shop for affordable tune-ups, bike parts, and training in bike repair. We also offer a large selection of refurbished bikes to help improve access to working bicycles in our community.
Our volunteer bike mechanics take great care to create access to affordable bicycles while prolonging a bicycle’s life. We work with gently used bike donations from the general public and replace worn parts with new or gently used parts, cleaning, lubricating and tuning in accordance with our 27 point check/repair list. We also remove and inventory parts from bikes that have outlived their usefulness and recycle the remaining ones.
Our value-priced, 100-plus bike inventory includes everything from striders to mountain bikes and hybrids to vintage.
We encourage and welcome area residents to visit the shop with your bike, get your hands dirty and work alongside one of our knowledgeable volunteers. Along the way, you’ll learn bicycle repair/maintenance, hang out with bike enthusiasts, and meet some great people!
