Welcome to Utica Bike Rescue: A hand-up, not a hand-out.

Utica Bike Rescue promotes bicycling as an effective and sustainable form of transportation and as a cornerstone of a clean, healthy, and safe community. We provide refurbished bicycles, bicycle safety, and bicycle maintenance programs in a variety of ways, focusing on children, students, refugees, and households with lower incomes. more

Utica Bike Rescue runs an open workshop where visitors can share tools, skills, and knowledge. Our programs are supported by donations and financial contributions but we don't turn anyone away for lack of ability to pay. We create positive social and personal change through skill development, job training personal empowerment and sustainable transportation. more
