Overview


Mission Statement

The mission of The Bicycle Tree is to support bicyclists and create healthy bicycle-friendly communities through activities, advocacy, and education.

Background Statement

The Bicycle Tree grew from the efforts of several people who shared desires to see the needs of bicyclists met through empowering, equitable, and educational means. We held our first public workshop on April 1st, 2006 on the driveway of a house on Harbor Blvd. near La Palma Park in Anaheim. We held repair workshops there every Saturday, building upon our initial basic knowledge and meager resources week by week.


We moved on from the house in 2008 to hold pop-up workshops in different cities, often using two heavy-duty bicycle trailers to haul our tools and equipment to our workshops.

In addition to our regular workshops, we served at dozens of events throughout the county, particularly in Santa Ana, our city of focus. These events included the Townsend-Raitt Street Fiesta and Resource Fair, the Día de los Niños Celebration, and the City of Santa Ana Earth and Health Fest.

After seven years of pop-up workshops, fundraisers, scheming and dreaming, and community outreach, we were ready to put down roots. We opened Orange County's first nonprofit community bike center at 811 N. Main St. in Santa Ana on January 25, 2014.

Opening our first real facility allowed us to greatly expand our programs and impact. Thousands of people have repaired their bikes at our do-it-yourself, learn-how-to-do-it workshops. We have donated about 200 bicycles to individuals in need. Over 100 youth have completed our Wrench and Ride bicycle education program, where each participant repairs and takes home a bike after learning a wide range of bicycle knowledge. Through partnership with the OC Probation Dept., we have repaired hundreds of bikes with youth attending the department’s Youth Reporting Centers; these bikes are given to supervised youth as a reward for good behavior and a means of transportation. We have led over 100 community bike rides, and held over 100 maintenance classes. We helped found the Santa Ana Active Streets bike and pedestrian coalition; together we have played a role in helping our city implement millions of dollars’ worth of pedestrian and bicyclist improvements. We have continued to host and participate in a wide range of special activities and events, including movie screenings, speaker events, bike swap meets, Noche de Altares, and open streets events.

In 2017, we moved to a larger, brighter space on 17th St., providing a more comfortable, spacious environment for our community and work. The book of The Bicycle Tree has just begun to be written!


Impact Statement

In 2017, we moved our center to a new, larger location in Santa Ana. Since reopening, we have had 1,800 repair visits to our shop by people who have learned how to perform maintenance on their own bicycles. We have brought over 400 used bicycles back into use that may otherwise have ended up in a landfill. We have resumed our Wrench and Ride program, with 18 students enrolled for summer of 2018. With our participation, our citywide coalition, Santa Ana Active Streets, has been carrying out the 2017 and 2018 Pedestrian and Bicycle Safety Program for the City of Santa Ana, along with the Edinger Avenue Safe Routes to School program.
 
For the year ahead, we plan to continue our donations of bicycles to individuals in need, and to continue our Wrench and Ride program in Fall 2018 and Winter 2019. We hope to continue developing our financial, staffing, and volunteer capacity to operate sustainably and to grow to meet the great need for our services in Orange County.

Needs Statement

Five pressing needs of The Bicycle Tree at this time are:
1. Staffing capacity. The Bicycle Tree currently has one full-time staff member (Project Director Paul Nagel) and is otherwise run by volunteers. Most of the Project Director's time is spent on programs, leaving inadequate time for all other tasks. We would benefit from the greater consistency associated with paid staffing, but we lack the capital to hire people on. We need regular help with many tasks, including volunteer coordination, community outreach, clerical duties, development, sales, and media.
2. Volunteers. The Bicycle Tree is always in need of volunteers with a variety of skills to meet many needs. Our unique need is for volunteers with bicycle-specific knowledge and experience, including mechanical/repair knowledge, and for leading bike rides. Many volunteer roles involve teaching skills to others.
3. Incorporation. The Bicycle Tree is a project of fiscal sponsor Social and Environmental Entrepreneurs. We are approaching a size where it may make sense to form our own 501(c)3 nonprofit. In the meantime, we would like to form a nonprofit corporation.
4. Legal advice. We would like to have the regular advice of a legal expert.
5. Board development. The Bicycle Tree is mainly governed by a Leadership Committee composed of active volunteers and staff. In the process of forming a nonprofit corporation, we would need to form a board of directors, who would serve as an advisory committee to the Leadership Committee. 

CEO Statement

When we first got The Bicycle Tree started over 13 years ago, I was one of the oldest people involved at the ripe age of 23. We were a gaggle of inexperienced, idealistic upstarts who met through our work preparing free meals from food that would otherwise have been thrown away. We believed in the power of mutual aid, education, and equitable empowerment. We were drawn to bicycling because it was cheap, fun, provided exercise, and allowed us to get around without the extreme environmental and social impacts of automobiles and petroleum. We also recognized that most people who depended on their bikes for transportation did not have a lot of money to be spending on maintenance. We learned about community bike shops like the Bicycle Kitchen in Los Angeles, Recycle-A-Bicycle in New York City, and Bikes Not Bombs near Boston, and felt inspired by their mission and work. Many elements were present to induce us to start The Bicycle Tree.
 
When we first got started, we rode bikes every day, but our ability to fix them was quite basic. We lacked the literal and figurative tools to address the needs of bicyclists in our area. However, we had passion and determination. Some of us went to bicycle repair school and/or got jobs at conventional bike shops. We read repair manuals cover to cover. We learned by doing, by making mistakes, and by doing again. We carried on in a county that in many ways was not a bicyclist's paradise, that didn't have a vibrant bicycling community (particularly among those using bicycling for transportation), a county without a strong bicycling advocacy coalition. Slowly but surely, we pedaled on, making an impact and accumulating the skills, equipment, relationships, knowledge of our communities, and everything else we needed to establish a set location for our organization.
 
It took us about nine years, but we finally opened our first storefront location in 2014. The Bicycle Tree has continued to grow roots in Santa Ana. While we are far from having the solidity and vast canopy of a mature oak, we are at least an adolescent tree, which has grown from the seeds of our youthful passion for fairness, fiscal moderation, and environmental stewardship. I believe we have remained true to our initial ambitions and vision. I am proud to have supported the development of The Bicycle Tree, which has become an important part of our community, and a community in itself.
 
Please do not hesitate to contact me with your thoughts!
 
Thank you,
 
Paul Nagel, Project Director

Geographic Area Served

Central Orange County
The Bicycle Tree is located in Santa Ana near Santa Ana College, Willard Intermediate, Santa Ana High School, downtown Santa Ana, the civic center, and the Santa Ana River. Most visitors to the shop come by biking or walking; most of those who come to repair their bicycle identify Santa Ana as their city of residence.

Programs


Do-It-Yourself Repair Workshops

The Bicycle Tree is open to the public four days per week. People may bring their bikes in and use the center's tools and equipment to repair their own bicycles while receiving the guidance and assistance of mechanics. Our services are offered for the suggested donation of $7 per hour, with no one turned away for lack of funds. We have a full assortment of professional bike tools, and a large selection of used and new parts and materials to complete most repairs. We also sell refurbished used bicycles, which is The Bicycle Tree's main source of funding.
Budget  $60,000.00
Category  Human Services, General/Other Transportation Assistance
Population Served Poor,Economically Disadvantaged,Indigent Immigrant, Newcomers, Refugees General/Unspecified
Program Short-Term Success  A successful repair interaction is defined by the quality of the repair performed, the extent to which the participant has learned about repairing their bike, and the quality of the participant's overall experience. A successful day of repair has the added definition of having the repair stands near capacity throughout the day.
Program Long-Term Success 
One measure of long-term success is seeing repeat visitors. Their returning indicates that the bike owner was reasonably satisfied with their previous visit. It also usually indicates that they have been using the bike, that they did not simply repair the bike and put it in the garage.
An increase in average visitation rates is also a measure of our increasing and positive reputation in our community as a result of consistent quality of service.
Program Success Monitored By 
When each person comes to work on their bike, they sign in and provide their residential zip code. This allows us to track the number of people repairing their bicycles, understand our geographic impact, and have some insight into the average income of our clientele.
We also make anonymous note of our having clients who verbally report that they are experiencing economic hardship, homelessness, drug rehabilitation, or immigration to the U.S.
Public reviews, such as those seen on Yelp, Facebook, and Google Reviews, are an indication of the quality of service we provide.
Volunteer and paid staff also discuss their qualitative assessment of the skills learned by clientele.
Examples of Program Success 
Any day we're open, we help about ten people repair their bicycles, adding up to about 1,700 repair visits per year, with many bikes requiring extensive repairs.
 
Many people we help verbally express that our services are a major help in their lives. For perhaps the majority of our clientele, bicycles are their primary form of transportation other than walking. We have many clients who come to our shop regularly for their frequent maintenance requirements.
  
As of this writing: 
On Yelp, out of 43 reviews, we have received 42 five-star reviews and one four-star review.
On Facebook, out of 47 reviews, we have received 43 five-star reviews and 4 four-star reviews.
One Yelp review: "Best learning experience ive had in a long time. This place has guided me into working on my bikes effectively. I love this place for the knowledge the volunteers have passed over and the arsenal of tools they have available." 
 
Another: 
"I love this place. It literally change may life in a positive direction."
 

Wrench and Ride

Wrench and Ride is an eight-week program in which youth participants come once per week for two hour sessions to learn about bikes, maintenance, and safe cycling. Curriculum includes learning about bicycle types, bike anatomy, general mechanical concepts, basic bike maintenance and repair, use of gears, basic bike handling skills, safe cycling practices, use of bike locks, and identifying bicycle routes. After participants select and repair a used bike with the assistance of staff, we go on a ride together as a group. At the conclusion of the program, each participant gets to take their bike home, along with a helmet, lock, and lights.
Budget  $16,000.00
Category  Youth Development, General/Other Youth Development, General/Other
Population Served Poor,Economically Disadvantaged,Indigent Immigrant, Newcomers, Refugees General/Unspecified
Program Short-Term Success 
Short-term success is defined by successful completion of the program by 80% or more of those who start it.
We seek to have over 90% of participants who complete the program evaluation say that they learned "a lot" and that they are "satisfied" or "very happy" with the bicycle they have repaired. We want all participants to indicate that they are "somewhat likely" or "very likely" to ride their bike regularly following the conclusion of the program.
Program Long-Term Success  Long-term success is defined by ongoing bicycle use by program graduates. Our target is that 60% of graduates indicate that they have continued to ride their bikes once per week or more one year after program completion.
Program Success Monitored By 
Success is measured by:
- Number of program participants
- Retention of participants from start to end of program
- Assessment of skills from beginning to end of program
- Participant assessment of their experience at conclusion of program
- Return visits of participants to The Bicycle Tree after the conclusion of the program 
Examples of Program Success 
Since we began Wrench and Ride in 2014, 94 youth have completed the program.
Participants almost universally indicate that they learned "a lot" during the course of the program.
Most participants indicate that they are "satisfied" with the bicycle they have repaired, and are "very likely" to ride their bike regularly following the conclusion of the program.
We have had an average retention rate of 85% of participants sticking through the program from beginning to end.
In 2015, Wrench and Ride graduates who were also active with KidWorks community center successfully applied for grant funding to install a protected bikeway near their neighborhood. As part of their grant application, they requested funding for programming modeled after the Wrench and Ride classes that they had taken.

Community bike rides

We regularly host community bike rides. These are group bike rides that are about riding at a fairly slow pace, often in plain clothes, on pretty much any kind of bike, riding through the neighborhoods we serve.
 
Currently, we do rides titled "Sabor de Santa Ana", in which we ride around Santa Ana and visit food trucks and small fast food restaurants. Rides are primarily advertised to residents. 
 
Our partners with Santa Ana Active Streets also lead community rides during the summer that typically meet and conclude at The Bicycle Tree. These rides are called "SAASy Thursdays", and tend to be shorter and slower than the Sabor de Santa Ana rides.
 
We have also helped host other rides, including weekly Sunday Morning Rides, the Santa Ana Ride of Silence, the Ride of Lights, a Dia de Muertos ride, and others. We are also a frequent ride meetup spot for regular youth community members.
Budget  $3,000.00
Category  Recreation & Sports, General/Other Cycling
Population Served General/Unspecified Poor,Economically Disadvantaged,Indigent Adolescents Only (13-19 years)
Program Short-Term Success  A ride is successful if the riders enjoy it. We also hope riders subtly learn about safe cycling routes and safe cycling practices - an important form of improving cycling behaviors given that safe cycling is not a part of driver's ed/school curriculum or common knowledge.
Program Long-Term Success  Long-term success is measured by repeated ride participation and growth of ride participation due to positive experiences and subsequent word-of-mouth invitations.
Program Success Monitored By 
Metrics of ride success include:
- Number of ride participants
- Frequency of bike rides
- Qualitative evaluations of rides by participants, volunteers, and staff
- Repeat participation
- Anecdotal reports of friendships formed during rides 
Examples of Program Success 
The Santa Ana Ride of Silence, the Dia de Muertos Ride, and the Ride of Lights each had 30-50 riders.
Our weekly Sunday Morning Rides typically had about ten riders and were formative experiences for many new riders.
Our Sabor de Santa Ana rides have averaged about 16 riders.
Verbal expressions from ride participants have generally been quite positive. 
We have planned and led over 100 group bike rides. 

Probation Dept. Bike Repair Program

Once per week, teenaged youth supervised by Orange County Probation Dept. officers visit the shop, bringing used bicycles obtained from the OC Sherriff's Dept. With the help of these youth, we repair the bicycles, which are later given to youth who have completed community service hours as a reward for good behavior. The bicycles also provide the youth with a means of transportation to the Youth Reporting Centers (schools operated by the OC Probation Dept. and OC Dept. of Education).
Budget  $5,000.00
Category  Youth Development, General/Other Youth Development, General/Other
Population Served Adolescents Only (13-19 years) Poor,Economically Disadvantaged,Indigent Hispanic, Latino Heritage
Program Short-Term Success  A repair session is successful if the bikes brought in are efficiently repaired, and if participants learn some mechanical skills. While we do not formally track this, we also hope to provide some measure of mentorship during our fairly brief interactions with participants.
Program Long-Term Success  Long-term impacts upon youth who help repair the bikes include learning mechanical and problem-solving skills applicable both to bike repair and general mechanical tasks. Long-term impacts resulting from providing bicycles to participant youth can include increased attendance at the Youth Reporting Centers, greater ability to search for and get to work, and improved health due to cycling.
Program Success Monitored By 
The primary metric of success of this program is the number of bikes repaired, which are then given to youth supervised by the OC Probation Dept.
The second goal is to teach skills to the youth participants, who typically each visit the shop for three 3-hour repair sessions.
 
Examples of Program Success 
We are now in our fourth year of operating this program. We have repaired over 100 bikes per year.
Typically, participants gain a measure of proficiency with certain repair tasks after completing a few hours of bike repair at the shop. 

Bicycle recycling

The Bicycle Tree accepts donations of used bikes, parts, and accessories. We are one of very few organizations that will accept non-functioning bicycle donations. Our volunteers and staff repair many bikes that are then sold for donated to individuals in need. We also sort parts to make them accessible to the public. Bikes that cannot be efficiently repaired have usable parts removed and the remaining materials are recycled at the scrap yard. We process approximately 300 bikes and thousands of parts per year, reducing bicycle waste and providing affordable cycling goods.
Budget  $20,000.00
Category  Environment, General/Other Recycling
Population Served General/Unspecified Poor,Economically Disadvantaged,Indigent Homeless
Program Short-Term Success  Short-term success has to do with efficiently contending with overwhelming donations of bikes and parts.
Program Long-Term Success  Long-term success involves repairing and using these used bicycles and parts effectively and getting them rolling.
Program Success Monitored By 
Our success in this program is measured by:
- Quantity of bicycles repaired
- Quality of bicycle repairs, evaluated by satisfaction of customers/clientele (partly through online reviews)
- Quantity of bicycles, parts, and accessories sold (tracked via point-of-sale system)
Examples of Program Success 
In 2017:
We sold about 350 used bicycles.
We donated 35 bicycles, helmets, locks, and lights to individuals in need. 
We recycled about 80 unusable bicycles, plus hundreds of wheels and other damaged parts. 
We sold over 3,000 used bicycle parts and accessories.

CEO Comments

We are primarily governed by our Leadership Committee, composed of volunteers who are otherwise active with the organization. Most of our Leadership Committee members are not in much financial position to donate financially, but each person volunteers at least 12 hours per month. I have listed our Leadership Committee members as our Board of Directors, as the Board of Directors of our fiscal sponsor have little to do with the direct governance of The Bicycle Tree.
 
We have listed governance and board development as one of our more pressing needs.
