Sheboygan County ReBike Program

Since it began several years ago, Sheboygan County’s ReBike program has provided over 1,000 bicycles to area residents in need.  The initiative is made possible by Paradigm Coffee & Music, as well as several very dedicated volunteers that hold the sessions every Wednesday from 5:30 – 7:30 pm at the basement of Paradigm.  Sheboygan County residents in need of a bicycle can attend a ReBike session, where they will be paired with a volunteer to spend a few hours working on a bicycle that has been donated.  Once any necessary adjustments are made, the recipient is free to take the bicycle home at no charge.  Because of its popularity, ReBike is always is need of bicycle donations in order to keep the program going strong and to provide residents with a bicycle that might not otherwise have had access to one.
