Community Bike Shop


Want to fix your own bicycle?  During Open Shop hours, we have up to six workbenches of professional-grade bike tools available for public use.  With the guidance of a staff mechanic, even those who have never picked up a wrench before can learn how to repair a flat tire, replace a cable, or even give their bike a full tune-up.

  • Register for both pick up and drop off events and notify us of any changes.
  • Notify staff at pickup if you need grease and lube to be provided (and bring a container to take it home in).
  • Seek assistance from OBC employees whenever needed.
  • Record time spent picking up, dropping off, and working on the bikes. You’ll receive an email asking you to record your impact (time spent) after each drop off that you have registered for. 

Pick up and drop off bikes on Tuesdays and Thursdays 6-8 pm.

Last pick up is December 2nd, last drop off is December 9th. 

Depending on your current bike mechanic knowledge and skills, allow for up to three hours per bike.
