What is a community bike shop?

A cooperative (co-op), is a group or people or community that work together for mutual benefit. Instead of central or private ownership each member is an owner. You may be familiar with the local Mid-Columbia Market at the HUB or WinCo Foods. Both are examples of cooperatives.


A bicycle co-op would look similar to a bike shop and offer similar services. However, a bicycle co-op would allow the members to drive the products, classes, community programs including youth programs, bike recycling, volunteer events, and advocating for the growing the Tri-Cities bicycling community.
