Need to use tools? Want to figure out how to adjust your brakes? Already know how to do everything, but you can’t fit a whole stand in your tiny urban apartment? You’re in luck! Bike Church has everything you need to get the job done. Bike Church is a program of Neighborhood Bike Works where adults (ages 18+) can use our shop to fix their bikes, buy a bike to build, and buy used bike parts.

Bike Church is run primarily by volunteers with bike mechanics knowledge who can assist you in making repairs on your bike. If you don't know anything about bike mechanics and want to take on a big bike project, we recommend that you first take our Adult Bike Repair Class.

We sell bikes in "as is" condition during Bike Church hours, and customers can then use our shop free of charge to fix it up. All income from bicycle & parts sales benefits our youth bike education programming.
