Rad’s vision is to be able to help anyone with any bike issue – through a network of volunteer mechanics and a fleet of donated bikes.
We believe in Springfield as a community where people help each other out.
As we’re limited by volunteer availability, we appreciate all of those who can make it to our regular workshops. If you are not able to get to us, we will do our best to get to you – all you need to do is ask.
Your ask might be a repair or replacement part. It might also be to earn a bike even if you have no cash. The first step is to ask.
As a non-profit entity, we encourage people to contribute – cash, bikes, parts – to help us sustain access to our network of tools and parts.
A community can give in ways that aren’t cash, however. Think of ways you might help us build our network and let us know.
Our project is fueled by people who donate underutilized bikes that are in good condition.
If you have something in your basement or garage that isn’t getting ridden, donate it to Rad where it can be a learning and riding asset for the community.
Call us at fouronethree-271-7293; email at radspringfield [at] yahoo [dot] com; or facebook us.
We have volunteer opportunities for youth and adults interested in furthering access to bike repair knowledge in Springfield.
Reach us at (413) 271-7293 if interested.
There are a handful of events taking place in Springfield during bike week.
Ride and/or give!
The Rad Garage is a project under development in 2017.
Our deepest thanks go to Springfield College for providing this beautiful space for the community’s benefit.
