We also have new shirts! come by during shop hours to try some on!

That is right! We will be doing a bike auction every week at the Troy Farmers market. The farmers market is located inside the Atrium center in downtown Troy from 9am to 1pm every Saturday morning.

Any donation gets you a raffle ticket with your name and phone number on it. Winning ticket will be drawn at 12pm sharp! If you want to donate but don't necessarily need a bike, feel free to do so and if your ticket is drawn you can opt to have us pick again for someone else or give the bike away to someone in need!

ALL donations go directly towards funding Troy Bike Rescue, from rent/heat to parts/grease!

TBR Goes to Bike!Bike! in Toronto... by bicycle, of course!



On Friday August 6th, a group of local bike activists, affiliated with Troy Bike Rescue will set out on a 7-day bike ride to Toronto.  The group will be attending Bike!Bike!
