Our Mission

Our mission is to promote the bicycle as a fun, safe, and accessible form of transportation, to foster healthy urban communities, and to provide a welcoming space to learn about building, maintaining, and riding bicycles.

Our Programs & Services

If your bike needs help or you would like to build a bike from our donated frames and parts, visit us during our hours of operation (pro tip: call first to make sure we’re open). We’ll provide the guidance, tools, and parts (supply willing) to help you build, repair, and maintain your bike. 

We hold bike repair and maintenance workshops every now and then. We post our upcoming workshops on our website calendar, Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram. Follow us on social media and check back on our website for information about future workshops.

Our six week Youth Build-a-Bike program teaches 12-18 year-olds how to build and maintain bicycles – and participants earn a bicycle and helmet.

How you can support the Bicycle Kitchen!

Your donations support your community

Donate used bikes and parts to help members of the community have access to clean transportation, help preserve our planet, and help keep our doors open. If you’d like to donate bikes or parts, just drop them off when we’re open. Tax donation receipts available.

We are operated 100% by volunteers

Drop by and speak to a Cook about becoming a volunteer. Start by shadowing a Cook, sorting parts, patching tubes, or wrenching on donated bikes. Wrenching is not the only way to help! Our volunteers also screen print shirts, design flyers, plan social events, weld + much more!

We are operating with extra precautions in place. Please wear a mask, stay 6 ft apart from other people, wash your hands often with soap and water for 20 seconds, and stay home if you are feeling unwell or have been potentially exposed to the coronavirus.
