Redemptive Cycles was established in 2012 in order to start up an Earn-A-Bike program in Birmingham, AL. In 2013 we opened as a full-time bike shop selling used bikes (and some new) to fund our EAB program. The shop and our charitable services have grown steadily in the past three and a half years, and we currently are 75% self-sustaining, with the remainder fund raised through grants and various events, memberships, etc. The bike shop focuses on entry level bikes, primarily used (received through donations/bike drives) and below market rate repair services. Our charitable services also include a Sliding Scale Repairs program (pay what you can), a full-time public work station, mechanics classes, bike valet service at numerous events through out the year, and a weekly community ride. We are looking forward to connecting with other community bike shops.
