The Athens Bicycle Co-operative

Athens, Ohio has a non-profit organization of volunteers that fix and play with bikes. The intent being to create a community of people who can enjoy bikes to their fullest. To do this we need a very active and savvy bike community. We further this goal by fixing bikes, teaching volunteers about bikes, creating an environment where volunteers can teach themselves about bikes, planning bike related events, and creating ways of getting more bikes to more people.

Current Bike Co-op Status

I would like to apologize to the community for letting this blog fall by the wayside. I have not checked in here or with the athensbikecoop Gmail account in over a year. As far as I know, a workshop is still in place at 30 First street, but details on the availability of volunteer help is sketchy. If you are seeking resources from the Bike Co-op your best bet is to contact a member of the household and see if you can make an appointment to use the workshop or look at the bikes they have. You might have to just show up and see who's there and ask if they have time  or will allow you to look into what's there.

I myself have continued working on developing my businesses here at 18 Euclid, both the pedicab service ( and my custom-manufacturing business ( I will also provide for basic cycling sales, help, and services upon request. I will also continue taking bike donations at 18 Euclid, no matter what type of bike or condition its in.

I have updated some of the contact info on this site because my phone number has changed, and I have deleted some contacts that I'm pretty sure no longer work with the bike co-op.

Hopefully all of you in the community looking for help with cycling endeavors will be able to find the resources you are looking for, and if not through the Bike Co-op I recommend to you my favorite bike shop in the region, The Athens Cycle Path (

Cheers, and happy 2014!
