Who We Are
Revolutions Bicycle Cooperative opened our doors in the basement of First Congo at 1000 South Cooper St. in June of 2002 with the intention of saving the world, one bicycle at a time. That summer, Revolutions built a shop where people could rehabilitate and recycle bicycles. We dedicated ourselves to providing all Memphians—particularly the working poor of Memphis—with bicycles that function well. We wanted to create a place where people could acquire the tools and knowledge to keep bicycles rolling, and more importantly, to make a positive impact on the community one bicyclist at a time.
Years later, Revolutions continues to be about connecting people and bicycles. As a community-based organization, we are focused on building neighborhood engagement through the use of bicycles. We provide an environment that empowers and encourages people to view bicycling as a viable means of transportation. By making bicycling a desirable transportation option, we create a healthier, more connected and livable community.
Grit. Grind. Give to South Memphis Teenagers this Giving Tuesday.
Revolutions Bicycle Co-Op has partnered with The Works, Inc., in South Memphis, and joined #GivingTuesday, a day of giving the Tuesday after Thanksgiving, that allows the Memphis community, individuals and organizations to team up to encourage philanthropy and celebrate generosity during this Christmas season.
With a $300 donation, you could provide transportation to teenagers in South Memphis, currently in need of reliable transportation. Included in the $300 is a bicycle, helmet, lights and a heavy-duty lock. This gift will allow teenagers to travel to-and-from school, after school activities and sports, and work opportunities.

This Giving Tuesday campaign provides the necessary tools to our teenagers that are a part of the Big Jump Teen Ambassadors Program. Learn more about that here.
