Saving the world one bicycle at a time
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.
Our mission is to build an inclusive community by getting people on bicycles.
Get a bike
Work on Volunteer Nights
Occasionally, Revolutions has tasks that need doing. When we do, we host Volunteer Nights. Volunteers can collect “Revolutions Bucks” coins for a volunteer session worked. These coins, worth 10 Revolutions Bucks, can be used to purchase one of our bikes in need of overhaul.
5 sessions earns a bike to be overhauled.
You must be a current Revolutions Member.

Basic Bike Assessment
Gain an understanding of the different systems on your bicycle. Make sure your bike is in good working order and safe to ride. We’ll also include some good cycling tricks-of-the-trade for making it easier to stay on your saddle.
This six session class takes a deep dive into the five systems of the bicycles: brakes, shifters, frame, wheels and bearing.
Fix a Flat
Everything you need to know about tires and tubes. Learn why you get flats and the best ways to prevent them, in the future. Never get stranded again! We’ll have a Flat fix saddle bag, available for an additional fee.
Held on the 3rd Monday of alternating months, these classes are offered free to members only, as a benefit of membership. You can join Revolutions any time you visit the Shop.
