The mission of the [http://www.bikecollectives.org/ Bike Collective Network] is to strengthen and encourage communication and resource sharing between existing and future community bike shops. Collectively we can improve a bigger wheel as opposed to re-inventing smaller ones.
 
 
Join over 600 like minded individuals from over [[Community Bicycle Organizations|300 similar organizations]] across the world on [http://lists.bikecollectives.org/listinfo.cgi/thethinktank-bikecollectives.org The Think Tank] email list.
 
 
This wiki is here to help bike collectives collaborate and share ideas.  Whether you are an [[advocate]], [[mechanic]], or just someone who likes to ride -- anyone can freely edit the content of this site.  A history of all changes ensures that nothing is lost.
