Bike Repairs

We are currently working on a plan open various parts of our operation. For now, we are NOT repairing bikes.

We are happy to offer bike repairs to those who can’t afford the services of a commercial bike shop. If you do have the means, please take your business to one of our local bikes shops, who have been extremely generous in supporting our mission.

We have two schedules for bike repairs depending on the season — Summer Hours and Winter Hours. Summer hours are for May 1st through October 1st (weather dependent) and winter hours are October 1st through April 1st.

During Summer Hours, from May to October, we do repairs only on Wednesdays and Saturdays from 9:00 am to 12:30 pm., first come, first served. It is not unusual for the line to begin to form at 6:00 am or earlier. Unfortunately, demand sometimes exceeds our capacity to meet it so we can’t guarantee that your bike will be repaired, though we do our best.

To beat the lines, please consider going to one of our five satellite locations when they’re open, weather permitting, generally during Summer hours. Note, though, that we don’t keep a full complement of tools and spare parts at those locations and may have to refer you to headquarters for some repairs.

MONDAY: 4-7PM 441 Parsells Ave.

TUESDAY: Westside Farmers' Market 4-7PM beginning June 12th

WEDNESDAY: 9-noon St Joseph's House of Hospitality 420 South Ave

THURSDAY: 1050 East Ave. Asbury Methodist Church 8 - noon

FRIDAY: Cameron Ministry, Cameron St off Lyell 9 - Noon.

WINTER HOURS: From October to May, we do repairs everyday at 226 but our off site clinics are closed
