Mission Statement

Mission

Free Ride is a collective dedicated to recycling bicycles, offering mechanical education, and promoting bicycling by helping people of all ages and backgrounds obtain, maintain, and repair bicycles.


Principles


Free Ride aims to operate without a hierarchy and to be respectful of all people.

Free Ride is supported and operated by the community of people who use it.

It is very important that all people who come to the shop are respected and encouraged to learn, regardless of their experience level or background.

All participants can benefit from Free Ride in a variety of ways, and in return should give back to the Free Ride community in some way.

Description

Free Ride is not a traditional repair shop, where you drop off a bike and someone fixes it, but a bicycle educational facility. There is that old saying "if you give a person a fish they will eat for a day but if you teach them how to fish they will eat for a lifetime." That is our basic philosophy at Free Ride!
