Milledgeville bike co-op officially opens

New bike co-op opens in Milledgeville

Milledgeville is pedaling its way to a better community.

On Saturday, Tom Glover and his team celebrated the grand opening of Co-op de Ville.

It’s a place where people can work on broken bikes, bring bikes in to be fixed, and even buy a new ride.

Co-op de Ville is manned by youth in Milledgeville, which Glover says makes this place more than a bike shop

“We created an application and we put it out in the community and had young people apply to work for free,” said Glover, “By working with the co-op, we're going to surround them with other business owners and leaders and teach them how to be entrepreneurs.”

The exact hours of operation are still being worked out.
