Greetings community, 

We appreciate your patience, as we have imagined, and reimagined what a space like ours can look like in this age of Covid-19. While we desperately miss being in person with our beautiful community, and realize people are wanting and needing the space to get on bikes and work on bikes, we also face the reality that congregating in enclosed spaces puts people at risk. 

At this time, we have a few updates. 

One, we will open the space upstairs at Back Alley Bikes for volunteers, starting next week (July 15th) on Wednesdays and Thursdays from 4-8pm. This will be limited to 6 people max. We will provide PPE for anyone who doesn’t have their own. If you are interested in volunteering, please email Jeff at to sign up. 

Next, we will start accepting donations on a limited basis. At this point, we have 2 dates this month, but may open it up more if needed. For now, we will accept donations this Sunday, the 12th and Sunday the 26th, both days from 12-3 at Back Alley Bikes (the alley off of MLK (Mack) between Cass and 2nd). If these times don’t work for you, please contact to make other arrangements. 

Finally, we have a date set for Garage Sale. It will be on August 1st from 12-4. We will offer BAB garage sale bikes and parts, as well as some Hub bikes for sale. We will also be giving away kids bikes for all Detroit residents that day. The sale will be in the back courtyard, as always, which is also off of MLK between Cass and 2nd. Sales will be cash only. 

At this point, the Hub will remain closed until further notice. The hope is to reopen the Hub the first week of August, but this is fluid. If you are interested in purchasing a gift card, please go to for more information. 

Thank you, please be well. 
– your friends at BAB / Hub
