A project of One Fam, Bikes 4 Life is a community bicycle shop.Located on 7th St. in the heart of historic West Oakland, Bikes 4 Life is a grassroots neighborhood bike shop and social justice enterprise with a mission to support the surrounding community and offer healthy, sustainable life opportunities to young people.
At the shop not only do we sell and repair bikes, but we also help to build future community leaders. B4L’s business model focuses on using biking, arts and technology to empower young people and develop leadership, business skills and a sense of community pride and responsibility.
Bikes 4 Life opened it’s doors in 2009 and is a project of One Fam, a community organization founded in 2000 in direct response to what we saw as the criminalization of young people and the lack of positive resources.
We strive to build relationships in the community by coordinating historic bike rides, community meetings and events, and have a diverse group of allies & partner organizations
