During 2020 we distributed bikes and offered repairs outside due to COVID-19. With the colder weather, earlier sunsets, and our move to our new shop 3 miles from downtown, we will not be able to continue handing out bikes until sometime in late April. We apologize for the inconvenience that this causes. Please watch this space for announcements on when and where we will start handing out bikes again.
We are continuing to look for a distribution space downtown and we are hoping to find an angel/hero/champion that has an unused space that they would let us use. An ideal space would be 1000 square feet but we could be quite happy with less. The space does not have to be pretty, just accessible and free or cheap. Please let us know if you have any leads or ideas.
We want to thank the greater Nashua community for your continued support.
And a big THANK YOU to our wonderful volunteers who make what we do happen!
When Gate City Bike Coop provides a bike to this client it means they can take the job and can improve their life. The bike we provided was not new. It had outlived its usefulness to its original owner. But with a couple of hours work we turned it into hope.

Volunteers, supporters, and interested people, please stop by to see what we are doing.
100% Volunteer run
100% Community funded
Working with groups like the Nashua Police Athletic League (PAL), the Nashua Soup Kitchen and Shelter, the Boys and Girls Club of Nashua, and other local agencies, we get bikes into the hands of folks living on the edge, who use them as their prime transportation year round.
Many of our clients have no way to maintain their bikes. When the bikes no longer work, they get abandoned. We break that cycle by providing bike repairs free of charge.
If a high-value bike is donated to us, we might sell it to help finance the rest of the operation.
