Adult Earn-a-Bike (17+)
Our earn-a-bike program provides donated bicycles and parts. Participants can choose a bike to earn after volunteering ten hours towards our shop operation and then build it up with tools and parts from the shop. Volunteer tasks typically include removing and organizing parts, building bikes for donation or sale, or generally helping in the shop, but if you have a skill or interest that you think could benefit us and count as volunteer hours, let us know!
Youth Earn-a-Bike (under 17 years old)
Our youth program is similar to our adult program, except youth earn their first bike in five hours and spend that time learning skills by building up their own bike with the help of a shop manager. All following bikes are earned in ten hours like with the adult earn-a-bike program.
The shop is open for youth and adults on Wednesdays (3:30pm-6:30pm) and Saturdays (Noon – 4pm). In order to participate, you must attend a mandatory shop orientation from 11am-Noon on Saturdays. With both programs, there is a two bike per year limit so take care of your bike!!
Women and Trans Night
Women and Trans Night operates just like our other shop hours, but it is a space reserved solely for women and trans folks. We welcome people with all levels of experience with bicycle mechanics and encourage those who have knowledge to share what they know. We strive to make Women and Trans night as safe a space as possible for learning, socializing, and empowering our selves and each other.
Women and Trans Night happens weekly on Friday evenings from 5-8pm.
