Organization DescriptionOld Spokes Home is a bike shop and 501(c)(3) nonprofit creating access to bikes and the opportunities they provide for our whole community. OSH is located in Burlington's Old North End and is dedicated to getting everyone, regardless of income, on a bike.

Qualifying customers can purchase bikes, service, and accessories at a subsidized cost: 50% off bikes under $400 (and $200 off bikes OVER $400), 50% off repairs, and 35% off accessories.
