Bike to Market
The Boston Cyclists Union started the Bike to Market program in 2010 to increase access to bike repair services in areas underserved by bike shops. The goal of the program is to teach people how to fix their own bikes, talk about the Bike Union’s advocacy projects and discuss how to enhance cycling in Boston.
The program takes place at Farmers Markets throughout the summer in neighborhoods across Boston. The guidance and repair is free and parts are sold at an affordable cost. Bike to Market is supported by donations and memberships – join the Union today!
At Bike to Market, Union volunteers and staff teach bike repairs such as changing flat tires and adjusting derailleurs and brakes. In 2015 the Bike Union and its volunteers taught bike repair skills to over 500 people and helped work on over 800 bikes at 50 events!
Expanding on our successful Bike to Market program, in September 2015 the Bike Union began offering year-round, DIY bike repair education in our former office space at 375 Dudley St.
In October of 2015 the Bike Union offered its first multi-session Basic Bike Maintenance class, and expanded our open shop hours from one to two days per week.
We are currently building out the Bike Workshop, which will allow us to greatly increase our capacity to teach bike maintenance to the community as well as host new bike repair programs.
Please consider donating to the Bike Union and help us make free bike repair education is Roxbury a reality! Below is a picture of the Bike Workshop while the mural was being painted, and below that is a rendering of what this space will become with your help!
