The Center for Latino Progress, through its BiCi Co. program, is providing an opportunity to improve youth and adult safety, sustainable transportation, youth programs, mechanics classes, job training, and bicycles. Bici is short for bicicleta (bicycle) and Co. stands for comunidad (community).
Be a part of our bicycling community — become a member or donate today. Or just stop by our storefront shop during do-it-yourself (DIY) hours to check out what we offer. We are located at 97 Park Street in Hartford, CT, at the crossroads of the Downtown, South Green, and Frog Hollow neighborhoods.
BiCi Co. was created by the Center for Latino Progress in June 2015 to provide an opportunity for hands-on bicycle education and service learning projects for 30 summer youth interns. It grew from there to include DIY repair hours, teen Earn-a-Bike courses, among other offerings.
In 2017 Bici Co. expanded to include a full service bike shop offering repairs, parts, custom work and bikes.
In Spring 2020, Bici Co. opened a full service bike shop, coffee and fitness studio at 616 New Park Ave. in West Hartford. This space is a continuation of our mission to serve the bike community and provide job development opportunities.
BiCi Co. is committed to meeting the need for bicycle-centered programs to serve Hartford’s strong need for efficient, inexpensive and safe transportation. Bicycles offer healthy transportation while for engaging youth — providing miles of opportunity.
Hartford played a major role in the early bicycling history of the country. Pope Bicycles was a major manufacturer, supporting the Good Roads movement’s push for paved roads.
Today, BiCi Co. is carrying the city’s rich bicycling history into the future. Come ride with us.
