Voted #1 Best Bike Shop in Silicon Valley, Good Karma Bikes, a non-profit social enterprise, located at 460 Lincoln Ave, Suite 25 in downtown Willow Glen, is a full-service, second-hand bike shop open to the public providing services and support for the local community.
The Good Karma Bikes community provides safe, reliable bicycle transportation, repair services, and training. We refurbish, sell, and grant bicycles at our retail shop. For every bike sold, Good Karma provides one bike or service at no charge for members of the community.
“Although we are a bike shop, we are not about bikes. We are a growing organization whose mission is to provide individuals with life transforming opportunities. Since our founding, we have provided 17,000 free repairs, served 500 clients, granted 1,500 bicycles, and logged 50,000 volunteer hours. In addition to our program with youth and staff, it is with the support our many dedicated volunteers and donors that we are able to provide the services we do to our community” states the shop from their website.
Good Karma Bikes believes that bicycles are the medium used to create the disruptive change we believe is needed. We work with former foster and other disadvantaged youth. Our primary program provides work readiness and college entrance via a two-year life, work and college program to at-risk youth. In addition to working in the shop and attending college, our youth also support our outreach programs to homeless and low income working people.
Keep an eye on this shop as they offer “Women’s Skills” and “Open Shop Night” to the community to teach bike repairs to the community.
May is “Buy 1 Foster 1”. In honor of Bike Month AND Foster Care Awareness Month, bicycle purchases at Good Karma Bike will provide bikes to foster children. Every weekend! All month long in May!
