Ohio City Bike Co-op

In the spring of 2001, a volunteer group of cyclists began an informal Earn-a-Bike program, teaching neighborhood kids bike repair and safe riding skills. In 2002, incorporated as the Ohio City Bicycle Co-op (OCBC), the group secured a storefront where it could renovate and sell its surplus of donated used bikes to cover expenses, and started a membership program to attract additional volunteers. Over time OCBC has expanded its Earn-a-Bike program, and is now teaching courses at schools and recreation centers, primarily on a fee-for-service basis.
