Products and Services:
DreamBikes is a unique community bicycle store. Our mission is to provide young people work experience, to open up future job opportunities and to make a difference in their lives, we refurbish donated used bicycles, parts, accessories and re-cycle them into the community at affordable prices. We believe these things make our community stronger.

In addition to our store front locations, DreamBikes offers a mobile repair program which brings our bicycle maintenance services, free of charge, out into the community to help those who need it most. Between Memorial Day and Labor Day we visit pre-determined sites around Dane County in order to serve a larger constituency, ensuring that everyone has access to a safe and working bicycle.
Philosophy:
Buying local is important to DreamBikes because it helps to boost the local economy. DreamBikes works to provide bicycles to those in need, at affordable prices. A bicycle is a vehicle for change, helping to stimulate the local economy and to empower the people.
History:
In 2006, we went looking for ways to help Madison at-risk teens get jobs and do it with the help of the bicycle. We found a retail location that we thought we could afford and developed a business plan to open a used bicycle store in the Allied Drive community of Madison, arguably the most troubled neighborhood in town. We knew that if we wanted to make a difference, we had to lean into the most challenging of situations. In 2007 we opened the Madison DreamBikes store and in 2009 we opened our second store in Milwaukee. Teens from the community run the stores: they fix the bikes, help the customers, help manage inventory, and help drive the business forward. It¿s a game changer.
