Freewheel Bicycling Collective: who we are and what we do

Leave a comment

Freewheel Collective has existed in a variety of manifestations over several years. Freewheel was born in the basement of house of activists and community organizers in Huntington, then moved to a collectively run youth space called Freespace in Ronkonkoma, and is now “matriculating” at Stony Brook University. We have matured in some sense, even though we are back in a basement!

This is our mission:

The Freewheel Bicycling Collective is a non-profit, non-hierarchal group of individuals who are dedicated to aiding the local community with issues pertaining to bicycles and cyclists. Freewheel Collective has established a working community bicycle shop which repairs donated and found bicycles, offers free and/or low-cost repairs and bicycle education programs. Freewheel encourages and celebrates bike riding as an ecologically and economically sound form of transportation by organizing community rides and “Free Bike Repair” days. Freewheel aspires to raise awareness of the benefits of bike riding to the local community, whilst providing affordable or free bicycle maintenance.
