The Community Workshop

Our workshop is a place where volunteers and members can come and learn to repair and maintain their bicycles. We have complete refurbished bicycles for sale, along with a stock of used parts and bikes available to everyone. We also gladly accept donations of unwanted bicycles and parts in any condition.

Though our workshop is currently closed to the public, we are still providing repairs by appointment and selling bikes online.
