The New Brunswick Bike Exchange
On Saturday, September 17th, the New Brunswick Bike Exchange (NBBX), in partnership with the City of New Brunswick, Keep Middlesex Moving, Harmony Family Success Center, PRAB, Mobile Family Success Center, New Brunswick Recreation, the New Brunswick Police Department, and Girls In Gear, presented the free New Brunswick Bike Rodeo at Recreation Park to a great turnout by the community.
The NBBX ran the ABC Quick Check station to ensure that participants’ bicycles were safely operational and their tires were inflated to the correct pressure.
Mayor James Cahill, who saved our program from shutting down when our lease was up at our old 90 Jersey Ave location in 2020, came by to see how we were doing.

In Season Hours:

Tuesdays: 6PM to 8PM

Thursdays: 6PM to 8PM

Ready for Season 4

If you want to get involved in the New Brunswick Bike Exchange there are a couple ways of doing so:

  • Organize and/or host a bike drive in your community, workplace, church, boy/girl scout troop, or other community and service oriented organizations. If you can put the word out to your community, we will provide support for the drive including brochures, fliers, and transportation to get the donated bikes back to our warehouse.
  • Volunteer in our shop, located in the warehouse at PRAB’s 90 Jersey Avenue facility. No mechanic experience is necessary and there are a variety of volunteer roles. We need cashiers, salespeople, accountants, mechanics, and bike drive coordinators.  Check out our Volunteering page for more details.

Have any more questions? Send us an email at nbbikeexchange@gmail.com and we’ll get back to you as soon as we can.

PRAB is a Human Services Organization in Middlesex County, New Jersey that provides a comprehensive range of essential services for children, youth, families and senior citizens. For more information on PRAB, click their logo.

Hope to see you around the shop!
