About Our Event

About Our Cause

Back Alley Bikes, Detroit’s non-profit bicycle cooperative, is gearing up for our 10th annual fundraising event, Bike the Blizzard. We strongly rely on this annual fundraiser to keep our doors open, programs running, and to be the community spot the Detroit bike riders rely on!

Back Alley Bikes is a 501(c)3 non-profit community bike organization and has been promoting cycling advocacy in the Cass Corridor for over 20 years. Our mission is to provide cycling education and services with a focus on youth development, sustainable practices, and community access. Through this unprecedented year, we have worked toward this mission by offering a safe, supported environment and resources for DIY open shop space, educational programs, and volunteer training & opportunities. We’ve partnered with community groups to provide over 300 free bikes to kids throughout the city, and helped over 50 community members gain access to bikes for transportation.

This year, we are counting on our community to come out like never before to help us continue to support Detroit’s cycling community. These funds help Back Alley Bikes keep the doors open throughout the winter months and beyond, so we can continue offering support to Detroit’s cycling community in the form of getting free bikes to youth in the city, offering a safe space with resources and knowledge for DIY Open Shop, holding educational classes, and volunteer time, when community members help to build bikes for Detroit youth and Garage Sales.   

This fundraising event will occur on February 12 and 13, 2022, where people will ride bikes solo or in small groups to raise money for the co-op. Participants need not cycle in order to be involved. You can find more information about the event here.
