More about Bikes Not Bombs and Chain Reaction 

Through Chain Reaction, we aim to create a catalyzing effect, using the skills we’ve gained as our professional mechanics and passing it along in the community to help create a friendlier environment for everyone to be cyclists. Giving folks the knowledge, tools and confidence to keep them rolling right through their day. Our goal is to create a persistent repetition of this cycle, so that we can all help make Boston safer and healthier for everyone.

Our professional bike techs work alongside Bikes Not Bombs’ Youth Apprentice Mechanics, helping them sharpen their professional and technical skills. Chain Reaction serves Bikes Not Bombs’ mission of social justice and economic mobility by both directly helping people in need of a flat fix or safety check, while at the same time giving our apprentices opportunities to develop valuable and transferable skills through meaningful community work. Our new mobile capabilities will enable us to bring professional bicycle services anywhere within Greater Boston, so whether you live near a bike shop or not, we’re shrinking the distance between you and a freshly serviced bicycle.

Keep your head up and your eyes peeled, Bikes Not Bombs will be wheeling through Boston, on a mission to get bikes rolling again. Who knows..? Your bike might be next!
