The irony of a chain leading to freedom

About Us

Remember your first bike?

Many of us might agree that a sense of adventure, freedom, and hope came with that bicycle.  The Motion Initiative is working to facilitate adventure, freedom, and hope, through the gateway of cycling, to those that need it most. 

Our Bike Shop

Our bike shop works as a hub of operations for the program. We accept donated bicycles to refurbish and then resell at a fair price to the surrounding community.  Youth are invited to participate and learn how a business and workplace function by taking part in all aspects of the bike shop while participating in all the TMI programs. The bike shop also acts as a very cool and safe place to hang out, build relationships, and have some fun. 

Mobile Repairs

 Our trailer is outfitted to carry up to 12 bicycles and all the equipment needed for an adventure. It is also set up to carry bicycle parts and portable tool boards so that we can visit  neighborhood events to help kids get their bicycles back on the road.
