Revolutions Community Bicycle Shop is a ministry of First Congregational Church that provides affordable and reliable bicycles to all Memphians. Members repair their own bicycles with the assistance of volunteer mechanics that have received training and experience in professional bicycle shops.
A membership at Revolutions features the following benefits:
Members can select a basic bike frame from the inventory of used bikes.
Members will assemble their bicycle at Revolutions Community Bicycle Shop with the help of a trained and experienced bicycle mechanic.
Membership provides three initial appointments for work stand time. Most bicycles can be constructed during three sessions.
All the recycled bike parts required to assemble one bicycle come along with the annual membership. Any replacement parts for one bicycle are covered by the annual membership.
Membership covers the cost of shop materials including cables and housing, lubricants and degreasers, recycled replacement parts, and work stand time (by appointment) for a period of one year.
- Members are entitled to make any additional appointments to repair their bicycles on any of the open shop days for the duration of their annual membership.
Aside from becoming members of Revolutions, readers can donate old bikes, bike parts, tools, and anything else that might be useful in a bike shop. Drop off your donations during open shop hours, or contact Revolutions to schedule a time that works for you (firstname.lastname@example.org). They accept all types of cycling materials, but if you have a question about your donation, please don’t hesitate to contact them. All donations are tax deductible.
