About the shop:

Bikes N' Roses is a full service bike shop, located at 4600 West Palmer Street, that offers affordable prices and is a non-profit organization dedicated to Chicago's youth. Being a non-profit organization means we rely on our shop income, grants, funding, and donations to operate our youth programs.

Our Mission:

Communities United leaders formed the first ever youth-driven bicycle cooperative called Bikes N' Roses, in which youth leaders are creating leadership and job opportunities for youth in our community by teaching professional skills like bicycle maintenance and repairs and holding "community rides" to get more people out riding their bikes and promote biking as a cleaner, cheaper mode of transit.

Bikes N' Roses is currently located in the Belmont Cragin neighborhood and provides job training and employment opportunities to young people. Bikes N' Roses aims to provide teens with the experience of what it is like to have a job and help advance their social skills. 

If you'd like to support the shop's mission, please consider looking at our donation & volunteering page to see how you can help.
