Mobile Repair at the Lexington Co-Op (Hertel Ave)

Apr 17 2:00 pm

GObike’s Mobile Bike Repair, presented by Independent Health, at the Lexington Co-Op (Hertel Location)

We bring our shop to your block!

From 2 to 4 pm, join at the Lexington Co-Op Hertel location (1678 Hertel Ave) for mobile repair!

We understand that for many, biking is your only form of transportation, and getting your bike to a repair shop may be difficult! Through our mobile repair services, GObike brings our bicycle repair shop to your neighborhood to provide basic maintenance or repair services.

Just bring yourself and your bicycle. Staff and volunteers will be on hand with tools to pump up your flat tire, fix that sticky chain, and adjust your brakes. Participants under 14, please bring an adult.

At GObike, we believe biking makes people’s lives better. It strengthens communities by connecting people and places. Through our community workshop, we empower the community by teaching bike mechanic skills because:

  • Mechanical work teaches essential life skills, like resiliency, determination, and curiosity;
  • Fixing something is much cheaper and more sustainable than buying new; and
  • Bike repair allows you to keep moving and exploring!

GObike also gratefully accepts bicycle and bicycle part donations at our mobile repair events. Bike donations are upcycled back into the community through our community workshop and youth recycle-a-bicycle program and help provide financial support for our community workshop and programming.

GObike, presented by Independent Health, promotes active mobility options, trails and greenways, and complete streets in Western New York.
