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.
In addition, other groups such as the Commonwheels Bicycle Co-Op, Rozzie Bikes, and the Yawkey Bike Club have hosted free bike repair stations.
The 2014 season of Bike to Market and other pop-up bike repair locations has come to a close. Thank you to the organizations and volunteers who provided this valuable service to the community. Please check back in here in the Spring for a 2015 schedule. In the meantime, check out the Events Calendar, which will include workshops or other bike events to attend.
