Oasis Bike Shop seeks to empower our neighbors by creating a fun and safe community space to help with bicycle repair, instruction on bicycle repair, and bicycle safety
Donate Your Used Bike/Bike Parts
Your bike donation equals mentoring time, teaching bike repair, lessons in working hard to earn something, healthy living, & the invitation to attend group bike outings! Tax donation receipts are available for your donations. Funds to run the Bike Shop come from private donations and the sales of bikes. We include bike locks and helmets with every bike. We accept drop-offs at any of our Oasis offices or at Hope Presbyterian Church, or we can schedule to pick up your donation from you. Contact Jessica to schedule a pick-up time.

Recently, the Oasis Bike Shop had seven young men from the inner city currently work through the Apprentice Mechanics Program where they were trained in bicycle repair, safety and mechanics … all skills that may come in handy for either their personal health, or a possible career path someday.
In addition to learning the how-to mechanics of bike repair, local youth can also get involved in the Oasis Bike Shop Earn-a-Bike program by volunteering, learning, and helping out in the Bike Shop with the end result of earning and selecting their very own bike. While logging their 24 hours, they are learning how to run a small business, being taught how to fix, revive and recycle used bikes, and perhaps most importantly, they are being mentored by a caring adult who is interested in investing in not only their physical health, but also their emotional and spiritual well-being.
Group events are frequently planned to further bonding and to demonstrate what healthy living looks like. Thanks to the exciting growth in Memphis regarding the Greenline and the Hampline, there is a lot of buzz in the biking industry, and specifically in North Memphis.
Additionally, the Bike Shop is partnering with Memphis Leadership Foundation and Community Bikes to help empower the neighborhood biking community through education, safety and training. By working together, we hope to offer more services and to create a buzz about this healthy and fun activity and to make our shop a sustainable ministry that the North Memphis biking community is proud to call their own.
Currently we are open two days a week, but hope to expand our hours in the future. If you would like more information regarding this growing ministry, like us on Facebook, or check out the Oasis Bike Shop webpage, or if you would like to get involved, please contact us!
If you believe in what we are doing in inner city Memphis, this is a valuable way to support us. If you’d like more information about our programs, please check out our website, like us on Facebook, or follow us on Twitter.
