Located in the heart of downtown Tucson, BICAS (Bicycle Inter-Community Art & Salvage) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit collectively-run community education and recycling center for bicycles that welcomes people of all ages and walks of life.
Through advocacy and recycling of the bicycle, the BICAS mission is to promote education, art, and a healthy environment while providing service and opportunity for those in need.
We’re an education center, not a traditional bike shop.
