Currently, members include people from downtown, Clifton area, and St. Matthews. All ages are welcome. In the summer months they ride 3-4 times a week.

Falls City Community Bikeworks is Louisville’s community bike shop. This is a place to learn and do bike maintenance and repair. The shop has tools and parts, and volunteer bike experts will show you how to work on your own bike or on one of ours. FCCBikeWorks serves a two-part mission: providing the space, tools and expertise to any community member wishing to learn and practice bicycle maintenance; and channeling the donation of refurbished bicycles (and related equipment and skills) to Louisvillians in need of reliable transportation. The overriding goal is to make bicycling more affordable and widespread.
