R Community Bikes is a grassroots, not-for-profit organization that collects and repairs used bicycles for distribution, free of charge, to Rochester's most needy children and adults. Our mission is to meet the basic transportation needs of those in the community who depend on bikes for recreation and also to get to work, school, rehabilitation programs and training sessions. For this segment of the population, quality of life and ability to participate in our community are greatly enhanced when our mission is achieved. R Community Bikes also provides a venue for the Rochester bicycling community to conduct educational programs relative to bicycle safety and maintenance.

We are open to the public on Wednesdays and Saturdays from 9:30 am to 1:00 pm at our warehouse at 226 Hudson Avenue (at the intersection with Woodbury Street) in Upper Falls. In addition, on Wednesdays, we conduct a bike give-away at St. Joseph's House of Hospitality at 402 South Avenue.

We welcome donations of bikes, bike parts, tools and money to cover expenses such as spare parts. We are always in need of volunteers to serve as mechanics and a variety of other positions. We will provide the necessary training."
