Bike to Market (Repairs & Learning!)

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. In 2013, more than 150 Boston Cyclist Union volunteers repaired 816 bikes at Farmer’s Markets in Dorchester, East Boston, Mattapan, Mission Hill, Roxbury, Roslindale, and South Boston.

2014: Free Bike Repairs All Over Boston!

Does your bike need some help? Find low or no cost bike repairs and tune ups at a location near you – and learn to do some of the repairs yourself! Some locations will also sell low cost locks and helmets.

These bike repair stations are sponsored by the Boston Cyclist Union, Commonwheels Bicycle Co-Op, Rozzie Bikes, and the Yawkey Bike Club.

Many of the scheduled repair sessions have already happened for the season — a few are still happening and listed below. Also see our Events Calendar for workshops you can attend.
