Revolutions was founded back in 2002 in the basement of First Congregational Church in Cooper Young, where it remains headquartered. Its mission is to build a more inclusive community by getting people out on bicycles, helping to create a healthier, more connected, and more livable city. The organization repairs, rents, and sells bikes, as well as offering a variety of classes and programming to the public. This month, check their calendar to catch one of their Bike Share 101 or Commute 101 classes, or stop by on a Sunday afternoon during their open shop hours to get help with your own bike repairs.
