Our Mission

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.

Updates

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

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.

  • Drop-in rate: $5.00 per hour (no membership required)
  • One month: $20.00
  • Six months: $35.00
  • One year: $60.00

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.)

Volunteer

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 bikefarm@bikefarm.org for more information.

  • Donation pick-up – Local bike shops all over town frequently offer donated parts, tires, etc to Bike Farm. When a donation is ready, we will alert the volunteer mailing list when donations need to be picked up.
  • Skilled Mechanics – Bike Farm always needs skilled mechanics to lead shifts and cover for volunteers unable to make their regular hours.
  • Unskilled Mechanics – If you want to learn how to build bikes, we have bikes for you to practice on and other volunteers to answer your questions.
  • Laundry – Laundry needs to be taken to the service 1-2 times a month.
  • Shop Organization – Wheels need to be evaluated and other bike parts should be sorted, measured, labeled and put away in their respective bins. Broken or extremely worn components should be recycled.
  • Wheel & Bike Builds –  Bike Farm frequently exhausts our supply of decent wheels and completed bikes.  If you know how to build wheels or bikes, we need you!

Donate!

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 .
