Recycle Ithaca’s Bicycles is a program of the Southside Community Center. We are a community bike program that has operated in Ithaca for nearly 20 years. RIBs accepts donations of unwanted bicycles, effectively rerouting them from landfills. Volunteers and RIBs staff refurbish the bicycles to good working condition and redistribute them to community members. RIBs provides Ithaca youth and adults alike with a safe, structured environment, where people of all ages can learn about bike repair and working cooperatively and constructively with others.
 
  
The two main programs offered at RIBs are RIBs Open-Shop and RIBs Hands-On Bicycle Maintenance and Repair Clinic. These programs provide opportunities to learn bicycle mechanics and safe riding skills. All of our programs are open to both youth and adults and require a sliding-scale nominal fee. However, no one will be turned away for lack of funds. We simply ask that you volunteer a set amount of time for the services you request.
