Gearin Up Bicycles, a grassroots bicycle cooperative has just moved into Northeast DC and are looking for people interested in learning and helping fix donated bicycles! Though it does sell and repair bicycles, Gearin Up Bicycles is not your ordinary bicycle shop. It operates fully on donations with a mission of teaching essential workplace skills to teenagers from underserved communities, encourage cycling as a practical healthy means of transportation. Gearin Up provides access to quality affordable bicycles, parts for sale, do it yourself bicycle stand time with full access to tools and volunteer guidance, and bicycle tune ups. Come check out Gearin Up Bicycles, make cool new friends, learn to fix bicycles, and help turn DC into a prominent bicycle city. They're located at 314 Randolph Place NE DC, right off the Metro Branch a Trail, a quarter mile north of the intersection of Florida and New York Avenue.
