We Believe in the Power of the Bicycle

As true here in Bicycle Warehouse's birthplace here in San Diego as it is in rural Africa: the bicycle is the ultimate freedom machine.
The bicycle is the most ecological, fiscally sustainable, and efficient mode of transport in the world. It provides freedom, fitness and fun in the lives of people who need it most. Based on this belief, we have undertaken projects that are helping to put bicycles directly into the hands of people right here in Southern California as well as developing areas of Africa with our partners at Mike's Bikes and A&K Philanthrophy.
We've shipped over four shipping containers loaded with bikes to Africa so far, and the changes these bikes make in their communities and in the lives of the owners is profound.
