The mission of Triangle Bikeworks, Inc. is to inspire high potential youth with few resources to pursue personal success, prepare for leadership roles in their community, work, and college while motivating them to be role models for others.
Triangle Bikeworks (TBW) is a nonprofit with programs centered on youth leadership development and getting youth and under-served communities outdoors. Future plans include a brick and mortar building that will be a resale bicycle shop where youth learn bicycle repair and maintenance skills. Also functioning as a bicycle recycling center the shop will refurbish bikes that would normally go into the waste stream. We will always promote outdoor activities such as cycling by providing access to high quality inexpensive bicycles to the community for a healthy and environmentally friendly mode of transportation. In addition, plans are to offer educational, recreational, and career-building opportunities to Triangle area youth. Triangle Bikeworks will be the premiere educational workspace for teens to develop confidence and leadership skills necessary for their adult life.
Triangle Bikeworks’ events are a source of funding for Spoke ‘n Revolutions Youth Cycling and other youth related programs of the TBW organization.
TBW is currently looking for retail space in Chapel Hill or Carrboro and is seeking bicycle donations. For more information please contact Kevin Hicks at 919-949-3359
