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 April 1st through October 1st and winter hours are October 1st through April 1st.

During Summer Hours, we do repairs only on Wednesdays and Saturdays from 9:00 am to 1:00 pm., first come, first served. It is not unusual for the line to begin to form at 6:00 am or earlier. Unfortunately, demand so exceeds our capacity to meet it that 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 four satellite locations when they’re open, 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.

During “Winter Hours,” as we call it, we will fix bicycles at our 226 Hudson headquarters from 9:00 until 12:30 PM
