About Bikes Not Bombs

Bikes Not Bombs is a 33 year-old Jamaica Plain based non-profit that collects recycled bicycles and puts them to use in social justice projects around the world. Each year we collect roughly 6,000 used bicycles and tons of used parts from our supporters around Greater Boston and New England. We ship most of these bikes overseas to economic development projects through our International Programs in Africa, Latin America, and the Caribbean. Bikes that don't get shipped often land in our Youth Programs where teens learn bicycle safety and mechanics skills in the process of earning bikes to keep for themselves. Our retail Bike Shop also reconditions and sells some of the donated bikes that we receive, in addition to running an Adult Earn-A-Bike and Apprenticeship program. The Shop's profit from the sales and repairs goes towards funding our local and international work.
