Bike to Market is an initiative to provide free or low-cost bike repairs in low-income neighborhoods where there are no local bike shops. The program is delivered by the Boston Cyclists Union as a way to serve the community, get to know the neighborhoods, and introduce their mission across the city.
To date, 1,632 bikes have been repaired at over 80 farmer’s markets during the summer.
Additionally, attendance at the farmer’s markets helps drive BCU membership, ensuring equitable representation across all neighborhoods.
During the winter months, you can find the Bike to Market program at the Egleston Farmer’s Market on Saturdays, January 26, February 2, 9, 16, 23, 2013 from 11-2p.
It is located at 45 Brookside Avenue, Jamaica Plain, MA 02130. The market is located at Our Lady of Lourdes Parish Hall behind the JP Brewery Complex and close to the Stonybrook MBTA Station on the Orange Line. You can go to have your bike worked on, or you can attend to learn about mechanics, or volunteer! See here for information about attending as a student or volunteer.
Information about the Spring and Summer schedules will be posted when they are made available!
