We are now a program of the Burlington Bike Project.

In January 2015, Bike Recycle Vermont broke away from Local Motion and formed a new non-profit organization: Burlington Bike Project. 

Burlington Bike Project operates both Bike Recycle Vermont and Old Spokes Home. Now, these two bike shops share a mission: to create access to bikes and the opportunities they provide -- for our whole community.

Bike Recycle Vermont and Old Spokes Home are the same two shops that everyone has come to know and love; they're simply operating together as a new organization with a shared mission, vision, and with a new board, staff, and advisors working to use the bicycle as a vehicle for social change.

Stay tuned for our new website in May 2015. Until then, stay updated by following both shops on Facebook: The Old Spokes Home and Bike Recycle Vermont.

"New Folks Buy Old Spokes" in Seven Days

7dayspicby Alicia Freese

originally published in the January 14th, 2015 issue of Seven Days.

The owner of Burlington's Old Spokes Home was worried when Bike Recycle Vermont moved into a basement across the street. How could two bike shops, just 160 yards apart, survive? Glenn Eames and Bike Recycle founder Ron Manganiello made a deal: Bike Recycle, which refurbishes and sells old bikes, would only cater to very low-income Burlingtonians who qualify for public assistance, while Old Spokes would continue to peddle and repair used bikes for everybody else. here to keep reading.










Four ways you can help Burlington Bike Project:

1.) Donate here.

2.) Make Old Spokes Home your bike shop.

Now Old Spokes Home's revenue supports social programs.

3.) Get involved.
