The Bike House is a community-based bicycle repair co-op in Washington DC. Our mission is to build a place where all people can learn about, work on, and enjoy bikes. http://www.thebikehouse.org/
Mt. Rainer Co-op aims to enable residents of Mt Rainier and the surrounding area to own, maintain, and ride bicycles affordably. They reclaim, refurbish, and redistribute used bicycles that would otherwise be heading for the landfill, teach bike repair to youth and adults, and partner with local organizations to promote an inclusive and responsible bicycling community. While the MRBC focuses its services on the residents of Mount Rainier, the shop and its programs are open to all on a donation basis. http://www.mrbikecoop.com/
This youth and community bike shop serves folks in and around South Arlington, VA. Located in Barcroft Park, along the 4 Mile Run and W&OD bike trails, they work with young people in the community, building bikes and building leaders. In addition to participating in their Earn-A-Bike Program and other Phoenix Team activities, their young mechanics join staff and volunteers in serving Arlington's biking community. They do tune-ups and repairs at low cost to area cyclists, and sell quality used bikes fit for the whole family. http://www.phoenixbikes.org/
Their mission is to encourage a vibrant and inclusive cycling community by providing a non-profit, volunteer operated, do-it-yourself workshop for building and maintaining bicycles along with training, rides, and events to empower interaction, skills, fun, and freedom. http://velocitycoop.org
Coming from backgrounds in public health, and bike advocacy; we found that one of the biggest barriers to cycling is the kind of basic repair that can be done in a few minutes. In order to get more people riding in our already bike-friendly city we started offering free bike repairs at local farmers markets.
Through simple, independent, weekly events we can reach the greatest number and diversity of riders and possible riders. We are
able to reach more people and help them by Providing information,
simple repairs and connecting them with the support services available
to DC residents. Each clinic is freestanding and independent, staffed
by your neighbors, and tailored to the neighborhood.
Come out to the market and join the community.
