Earn a Bike – Our newest program! With just 15 hours of volunteer labor at our shop, you can earn a bike while learning useful bike repair and maintenance skills. For more info, click here.
Open Shop – Need to make a repair on your bike or do some maintenance? Stop by Thursdays between 4pm and 6pm (first come, first serve) to use our tools and get some professional mechanic assistance. If this timeframe doesn’t work for you, give us a call to schedule an alternate time. Donations are appreciated but not required.
Change a Tire, Change a Life – We work with over 40 partner organizations that serve people in our community experiencing homelessness, extreme poverty, and mental health challenges. Staff members can request bicycles for their clients, and our mechanics and volunteers work together to fix up reliable, single-speed cruisers that are easy to ride and maintain. We pride ourselves on providing these bicycles to help individuals empower themselves to find jobs, commute to work, attend healthcare appointments, visit loved ones, and get exercise. To receive a bike through this program, please have a staff member from a local outreach agency or nonprofit partner contact us via email to get access to our application.
Free Bikes For Kids – We think every child should have a bike! We provide free bikes and helmets for any child (10 years old and under) through our Free Bikes for Kids program. Right now, this program is not on-going, but hosted through 2 major giveaways per year, one around the holidays and one in late Spring/early Summer. Make sure you’re signed up for our newsletter to find out when our giveaways happen.
Bicycle Thrift Shop – Get yourself a sweet ride at a great price. If you need a bicycle but cannot afford the price of a brand new bike, we got you covered. We have a great selection of bikes that are ready for their new rider, typically priced between $50 and $400.
Bicycle Recycling – Bicycles end up in landfills every day. Instead of letting bicycles rust away and leach pollutants into waterways and the soil, we try to take bicycles in all conditions when we have the space and resources available. Bikes that we cannot fix get stripped of usable parts. We also recycle unusable rubber tires/tubes and scrap steel and aluminum. Though this process is time-consuming, we are committed to making sure that even the most rusty bicycles get a Second Chance!
Pop-up Repair – People who cannot easily access bike shops often have trouble relying on their bikes for transportation because their bikes lack proper maintenance and basic repairs. We provide free repair and adjustment for our Second Chance Bikes at partner organization sites. *Pop-up Repair events are canceled until further notice. If you are interested in helping us restart these pop-ups, please contact us!
Bicycle Valets – Are you hosting an event at a venue that lacks bicycle parking? Want to encourage attendees to ride their bicycles to your event? Have us host a bike valet! Please contact us for more information.
