EARN A FREE BIKE!

Brownsville youth earned a free Bike at the Bike Barn
The Brownsville Bike Barn, located at 624 E. Madison Street (on the corner of E. 6th and E. Madison), is home to the only earn-a-bike program south of San Antonio!

How does an earn-a-bike program work?

Bikes are donated to the Brownsville Bike Barn by community members and the Brownsville Police Department.

Once donated, these bikes are then available to anybody, of any age, to earn through volunteer service.

During the working hours, volunteers will learn about basic bike repair by working with us to repair the donated bicycles.

In addition, volunteers may also participate by assisting in the garden area and organizing the Bike Barn.


The Brownsville Bike Barn also serves as a co-op for anyone looking to borrow tools to fix their bikes.

Parts are not sold though, so please bring what you need.

Bike Barn volunteers and staff may also be available to assist with minor bike repairs when available (new volunteers looking to earn a bike are prioritized to repair requests), but please remember there are no professional bike mechanics here and therefore we may not be able to fix your bike.

This program is about hands-on learning and teaching cyclists how to maintain equipment. No drop-off service.

The Brownsville Bike Barn is open every Saturday (except for some holidays and during bad weather) from 10 AM to 2 PM.

*Youth under the age of 13 are required to have a guardian present while working at the Bike Barn.
