Bike Kitchens

Need your bike tuned up? While Bike Kitchens won't repair your bike for you, they will give you the tools and expertise to get it done hands on! There's no better way to both get your bike back in action and also empower yourself to learn more about how it works!

Bike to Market

Our Bike to Market program is currently on pause while we work to increase our capacity - stay tuned for updates! In the meantime check out the list of bike kitchens above!

Through the Bike to Market (B2M) program, the BCU provides free bike repair at farmers markets in neighborhoods with limited access to bike shops.

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 guidance and repair is free and parts are sold at an affordable cost.

At Bike to Market, Union volunteers and staff teach bike repairs such as changing flat tires and adjusting derailleurs and brakes.

Since 2012, the BCU has fixed more than 8,000 bikes while teaching valuable repair skills.
