Ringing in the Red Shed

Did you know …

That there’s a place in Olneyville where kids of all ages can learn how to fix their beloved bikes?

Ten years ago, members of the Woonasquatucket Watershed Council were finding numerous bicycles in the river and asked themselves, “Why is this happening?” They soon realized that kids, neighbors, and fellow Rhode Islanders needed a resource where they could maintain their two-wheeled treasures and launched the Red Shed, a maintenance and repair workshop located in two 30-foot, bright red shipping containers. Today, Red Shed programming includes camps, riding lessons, and scholarships!
