Bike Against Collective>Fort Collins,CO

Why a bike collective? For Sharing,helping,Learning,networking,recycling... For Health,friendship,creativity,self sufficiency...

How it works: the community donates bikes,parts, etc. -> we get the bikes running -> we give the bikes away for a donation or for free -> the cycle continues...We also refurbish and donate bikes for a wide variety of events and programs to help with community outreach and fundraising.
