Mission Statement

Our mission statement is unique as a community shop which caters to everyone with a focus on helping the surrounding hispanic neighborhood and lifestyle. Our motto like many co-op's is, "No one is turned away for a lack of." Meaning anyone can work off their needs. If you are low/no income, you may work off your hours organizing the space or contributing with your own skills and after your time or value is contributed into the equivalent of a bike, and giving back to the community at the work-space, you may build it, and call it yours.

Mostly we are a bicycle orphanage. We take in donated bikes, most in inoperable conditions of various states and bring life back to them and house them until they can be properly rehomed. To a family or individual who can give them a good home.

Description

Hello! We are Bici Libre! Located in the Pico-Union district just adjacent to the Figueroa corridor of downtown LA and wedged between the South Park and Westlake Districts of LA, we serve the hip fixie cultures as well as BMX'ers and everything in between.

We are in need of Volunteers! To find grants and benefactors to support the continuation of the workshop/warehouse. We will teach you bike skills so you can help others get their bikes to riding condition again! The community operated workspace is a place where you can borrow tools and gain knowledge of and for your bicycle. We need volunteers to post listings of currently available bicycles on social media sites and reseller sites like Craigslist.
