The Columbus Bicycle Co-op is a volunteer-run not-for-profit community bike garage that provides the space, the tools and the knowledge to repair and refurbish bicycles. We take donations of bikes, refurbish used bikes and get them back on the road, and help you learn to fix your own bike. Come and see us in the United Way building to check out our selection of refurbished bikes, available for a small donation or by volunteering to earn your own bike.
