Winner of the 2015 Smart Growth Alliance Award – Reading Bike Hub

photoThe Reading Bike Hub is a nonprofit community bike shop & advocacy center in Downtown Reading that offers bike products, services, trainings & social activities.

We envision a community in which biking is safe, enjoyable and affordable.

We believe that a thriving and diverse bike culture will bring economic, social and environmental benefits to the city of Reading.

The Reading Bike Hub is established as a “pop up” shop and pilot program of the Redesign Reading Community Development Corporation, with the goal of developing a self-supporting business model.

ReDesign Reading operates as a fund of the Berks County Community Foundation.  The official registration and financial information of Berks County Community Foundation may be obtained from the Pennsylvania Department of State by calling toll free, within Pennsylvania, 1-800-732-0999. Registration does not imply endorsement.
