Free Cycles Missoula

Imagine: Active walking and cycling cultures; extensive transit systems that run on renewable energy; bicycle station and car share options; safe and flowing vehicle movement; networks of greenway corridors that connect people and open space; an awareness and understanding of transportation issues and impacts.

Free Cycles Missoula is a bike program that provides bike parts and help to the community. During open shop, you can fix your own bike, get free used parts, build a bike trailer, rent a checkout bike, or build your very own free cycle. Free Cycles Missoula is composed of volunteers who, in addition to providing technical advice, teach BikeWell classes that cover bike safety and bike maintenance. The shop is a place to work on your bike, get used parts, build a bike trailer, and get technical advice and meet bike enthusiasts from all over.

Currently, the program is working on rebuilding bicycles for the Safe Routes to School program. The bicycles will also be used in physical education classes as part of the traffic safety lesson.
