Bike meet-ups are held at the community workshop, Brave Bikes, located at 31/36 Naberezhno-Khreshchatytska Street, Kyiv, 02000. Volunteers gather at this location to collaborate with Oleksiy in the repair of pre-owned bicycles. These repaired bicycles are subsequently transported to areas that have been liberated from occupation. Oleksiy guides volunteers, shares his own experience, and imparts knowledge that could prove valuable down the line.
Oleksiy is a true maestro in his field, as he himself is overseeing two projects — lifecycle.kyiv and cargocult.com.ua.
Up until August 2023, volunteer gatherings were held at the Lifecycle.kyiv workshop.
To grasp the rapid growth of the “Brave Bikes” project, consider the following achievements:
Stichting Zeilen Van Vrijheid Foundation:
Collects used bicycles in the Netherlands and transports them to Ukraine.
Brave's Warehouse in "Rybalsky" Residential Complex:
Receives and stores the bicycles amid the repair sessions.
Cargocult Delivery to the Workshop:
Dedicated volunteers transport the bicycles from the warehouse to the workshop, utilizing specialized cargo bikes.
