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.
Bike Farm has Winter Hours between October 1st and March 31st. During this time, Monday and Wednesday shifts are from 5pm to 8pm. All other shifts are same. Open hours on Mondays and Wednesdays will increase for the summer season (April 1st through September 30th).
Membership entitles you to full use of shop space and a professional set of tools with the assistance of a mechanic during open hours. Membership also entitles you to some free workshops and 20% off new parts and accessories.
Anyone who purchases a bicycle from Bike Farm receives a free one-month membership. Work-trade, baked goods, frosty beverages, and other creative donations are welcome. (All trades are assessed on a case-by-case basis, and at the discretion of the shift’s volunteers.)
The best way to become a regular volunteer is to attend our Monthly Volunteer Orientation Night on the 3rd Wednesday of each month from 6:30-7pm in the shop. You will learn how Bike Farm works, our mission, meet other volunteers and get a better sense of what you might want to do. You don’t need to be a mechanic to volunteer! Orientation happens during a regular wrench night, and you are encouraged to stick around after the meeting to volunteer.
If you cannot attend the monthly orientation, please drop by any open shift and talk to a mechanic to volunteer. We always have tasks for anyone to do and need the help!
Our general monthly shop meetings happen on the 4th Tuesday of every month at 7pm. All are welcome at general meetings. Subscribing to our email list is another way to get involved. Many shop discussions take place there. Email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
The shop is always in need of used parts donations. If you have new or used bike parts or tools, you may bring them by the shop during open hours-- no appointment necessary. If visiting the shop isn’t an option, you can send us an email and we will see if a volunteer is available to pick it up.
Bike Farm also accept cash donations, which are used to pay rent and bills on the shop, buy new tools and build-stands, and maintain our retail inventory and website.
No donation is too small, and because Bike Farm is a registered 501(c)3 nonprofit, your cash or parts donation is tax-deductable. Our EIN is 26-1415141 .
