Description

A New Spin is a non-profit bike shop that sells used (recycled) bikes as well as new parts and equipment. We will use bikes as a method to teach job skills to at-risk kids, adults and kids with Intellectual/Developmental disabilities and eventually people with any disability. Our goal is to teach the skills needed to move these individuals out into the community as well as have at-risk kids earn their own bike through community service in our shop.

We seek to promote a place of community that is genuinely inclusive regardless of income level, ability level, or any other factor that may act as a barrier to being part of a community.
