Description

Working Bikes is a nonprofit that refurbishes discarded and donated bikes, then sells them affordably to local users or ships them to other countries where cheap bikes are needed. It is housed in a former borax factory. The upper and lower floors are a veritable museum of bicycles, jam-packed with bikes of unusual sizes, makes, or models. There are even a few pedal-powered contraptions that do things like pump water or play records.

Visitor Experience

Meet the volunteers who run Working Bikes and see the nonprofit's eclectic and impressive inventory of bikes.
