What is The Northwest Hub?
The Northwest Hub is a not-for-profit full service bicycle shop, bike reclamation program and training center. Proceeds from our cycling center directly serve neighbors in need of transportation who "purchase" a bike through service to our community.
Volunteers help us reclaim bicycles that would otherwise be scrapped or end up in the landfill. (See "Volunteer Opportunities" for how to apply).
Those same bicycles mobilize neighbors in need of transportation so they can find jobs, make appointments, save time over walking, and enjoy the great outdoors. Shawn (below) now has a full time job at Fred Meyer, thanks to our help. His next goal: a car.
Long term volunteers get repair education, and can learn fabrication techniques like machining and welding.
If you dig what we do and want to support us, there are many things you can do:
1. Make a tax deductible contribution. Your donations are efficiently used to help mobilize and empower neighbors.
2. Donate your unwanted bike - your donation is tax deductible.
3. Come into our store and check us out. Invest in a new or used bike, all-weather clothing, accessories, or repairing your bike. Used bikes save precious resources and over 500 lb of CO2 emissions over new bikes.
4. Volunteer your time with us - our volunteers are our most precious asset!
