Bike Collective Network
= The mission of the Bike Collective Network is to strengthen and encourage communication and resource sharing between existing and future community bike shops. 
"The Bike Collective Network is a hub which anyone involved with not for profit bicycle projects can use to engage with each other, to share knowledge and experiences. Through various tools and gathering opportunities we learn from one another’s mistakes and triumphs, in the hope of growing the community of bicycle collectives and empowering its organizers.
The mission of the Bike Collective Network is to improve and encourage communication between existing and future community bike shops. Collectively we can improve a bigger wheel as opposed to re-inventing smaller ones.
Since 2008, the BCN has acted as an archive of information and public forum. A free space for people to ask questions or share what they have learned and engage with a diverse group of people with the common experience of working in community bike projects." (http://www.bikecollectives.org/#about)
