If we teach a young person to fix a bicycle, he will have skills forever.

Established in 2011, the Oasis Bike Shop in North Memphis (1294 N. Thomas St.) is our flagship location and home to a ready to use supply of bicycles. Initially opened as a repair and recycling center, the shop quickly grew and began to offer a variety of youth development and skills building programs. The success of these programs, and sustainability of the shop, inspired us to establish Community Bikes of Memphis to serve a larger community.
