Bike Farm is an all volunteer-run collective dedicated to every aspect of bicycle education, from safe commuting to repair. Our mission is to provide a space where people can learn about the bicycle and build community around promoting sustainable transportation. We strive to demystify the bicycle in order to impact the city in a healthy and positive way.
Using the Shop
Bike Farm is a do-it-yourself bike shop staffed entirely by volunteers. Members and non-members are welcome to drop by– no appointment necessary. Find out more about memberships here. For non-members, it costs $5 per hour to use the stands, tools, and guidance from our mechanics.
During shop hours, at least two volunteer mechanics will be in the shop to help you learn to work on your own bicycle. Our goal is for YOU to do the work yourself, while we help guide your learning.
People of all levels of experience are welcome to come to the shop during open hours and work on their own bikes. Some patrons are just beginning to learn to wrench. Others have maintained their own bike for years and simply want access to a professional set of tools and some padded floor to make a mess on. Bike Farm volunteers hope to meet you at your level and provide whatever support or guidance you may need.
For more information about how the shop runs, see our FAQ.
