events & collaborations

Bikes del Pueblo repairs and builds an average of 11 bikes per week, resulting in a whopping 600 bikes per year. (and that's just from our records!)

Bikes del Pueblo does much more than the bike kitchen and bike builds every week. We like to get involved with our community by hosting and contributing to events like:

-Bicycle maintenance and repair workshops and clinics
-Group bike rides
-Scavenger hunts
-Film screenings and discussions
-Bike builds for community outreach organizations
