Mission Statement

Transforming our community through empowerment with alternative transportation and through access to bikes and education about the maintenance and repairs of bicycles.

Vision: Providing equitable access to bikes and education

Organization History

Bikes Together's origins date back to the mid-1990s when a group of residents created the Park Hill Bike Club. They wanted to provide neighborhood youth with alternatives to gang involvement and substance abuse while providing recreational, educational, and employment opportunities for these neighborhood youth in an atmosphere of friendship, mutual respect, and diversity. Due to financial challenges, the Park Hill Bike Club shifted all of its equipment and operations to the Derailer Bicycle Collective in July 2004 which remains open and active in West Denver for the greater cycling community.

In 2005, LiveWell Colorado's Park Hill Thriving Communities began endeavors to lessen the health disparities that plague Park Hill and began the process of taking the bike club idea one step further. They helped by organizing community leaders, forging partnerships, investing funds and securing in-kind donations, and established The Bike Depot's shop in 2008. The Bike Depot because Bikes Together in 2016 after opening a second location in the Mariposa development near 11th and Osage.

Since opening day, Bikes Together has gone from an intermittently open shop with Fix-Your-Bike and Earn-A-Bike programs to a fully staffed (by paid employees and volunteers), full service bike shops with year-round Fix-Your-Bike programs, weekly Earn-A-Bike orientations, and various classes and programs for both children and adults almost every day of the week.

Bikes Together now serves thousands of customers and class participants each year, and provides hundreds of bikes to kids and adults who otherwise would not have to them.
