Highlights from CABDA Midwest

We couldn’t be happier with how many IBD owners, operators, and employees we had the chance to meet at CABDA Midwest. 

We also had the unique opportunity to meet with TBC members from bike shops across the country to explore new tools, dig into data insights, and tap into a collaborative network entirely unique to our cooperative of IBDs.

Special Thanks: Jamis Bikes

The Bike Cooperative would also like to extend a special THANK YOU to Jamis Bikes  for donating 13 bikes for the Chicago Neighborhood Boys and Girls Club. 

This also gave our members the opportunity to work together in true cooperative fashion to assemble the bikes on-site and present them to the Boys and Girls Club.

Thinking about joining the co-op?

If you want to go far, go together. That’s the cooperative difference. 
(and we’d love to tell you more about it)
