OPEN SHOP

Program is currently modified due to COVID-19

Open Shop Program / DIY Bike Shop: The Open Shop Area is the heart of Second Cycle, where people come together in a learning and working environment. Open every Thursday of the month, the space is a lifeline for those dependent upon their bike for daily transportation. We help people keep biking to where they need to go, whether that be to their job, to social services, to meet a cycling goal, or to strengthen their self-reliance and mechanical ability. Repair stands available by reserving in person or over the phone. Drop-in repair stands also available on a first come, first serve basis. Participants are limited to 90 minutes of open shop area use.
