About Us

Bikes Not Bombs Mission

Bikes Not Bombs uses the bicycle as a vehicle for social change to achieve economic mobility for Black and other marginalized people in Boston and the Global South.

Your purchase from the BNB Bike Shop supports our mission, helping us reclaim and restore discarded and donated bikes through local and international programs that provide skill development, jobs, and sustainable transportation.

Bikes Not Bombs is a non-profit founded in 1984, headquartered in Jamaica Plain, a neighborhood of Boston, Massachusetts. We ship thousands of bikes each year through international aid partnerships, build and refurbish hundreds of bikes in our full service repair & retail bike shop, train dozens of youth apprentices through our social enterprises, offer community classes and open repair stand time, and run youth programs such as Earn-a-Bike.
