September 2011 – Working Bikes in Grid Chicago’s Visitors Guide

Working Bikes was featured in a post by Grid Chicago on September 7, 2011. Grid Chicago is a blog about sustainable transportation matters, projects and culture in Chicago and Illinois. Founded in June 2011 by John Greenfield and Steven Vance, Grid Chicago became Streetsblog Chicago in January 2013.


John Greenfield’s post, entitled “A Visitor’s guide to biking in Chicago,” focuses on a range of bike-friendly businesses and events around Chicagoland. Greenfield writes:

“On the South Side, in the Little Village community, Working Bikes Cooperative is another key hangout. One of four community bike shops spread across the city, this warehouse space offers dozens of rehabbed rides for sale and well-organized spare parts to pick through, plus repairs. Proceeds are used to ship containers of bikes to sister organizations in developing nations.”
