About Us

How it works

The Newark Bike Project is a community repair shop that offers shared access professional tools and knowledgeable volunteer mechanics. Individuals who have no experience or lots of it can come to work on bikes and meet others in the community. The mission of NBP is to educate, create community, and empower folks in a way that encourages sustainability!  Funding comes primarily from the sale of used bikes that have been donated by the community but also from financial donations, grants, and parts sales.


Around November 2011, a handful of community members and students started planning to bring a community-focused bike coop to Newark. Between 2011-2014 we moved three times before settling in our current location on South Main Street. In 2023, we will be moving to our new home in Newark Shopping Center.


The Newark Bike Project is organized and operated by volunteers like you! Residential and University of Delaware community members in Newark. Anyone who is passionate about biking, helping others, learning, and improving their community through the advancement of biking is encouraged to join us!
