CBC shop gift certificates - Empowerment Bucks - are good for the cost of bikes/parts in our community do-it-yourself bike shop. We give Empowerment Bucks to local social service agencies who, in turn, give them to people with limited means. It's our bicycle-powered contribution to independence and community resiliency. Empowerment Bucks are distributed by:

Pop-Up Bike Shops

We improve access to bicycles in underserved communities by setting up temporary bicycle shops at neighborhood schools so people with Empowerment Bucks can more easily get a bike. Our inaugural Pop-Up Shops are at Lincoln Elementary and Garfield Elementary's Pantry Day. Spanish and Arabic speakers will be on site, as will rideable bikes from our shop!

Thank you to Benton County Health Navigators, ODOT, Love, INC., Saint Vincent dePaul, Samaritan Health Services, City of Corvallis, and King Legacy Advisory Board for supporting access and equity in bicycling.
