Open Shop: Community Repair Space
Sep 24 @ 1:30 pm – 4:30 pm

What exactly is Open Shop?

Well, it is a self-directed space for adults to use our tools and repair stands with the help of a professional mechanic and volunteer “Hosts.” Open Shop is a friendly, safe, and non-judgmental environment to empower yourself to learn mechanics, help others, and build community! Fix that flat tire from last spring, or change out your handlebars to a comfort bar for commuting. There is no better way to demystify your bike than taking a wrench to it yourself!

Who can use the space?

Open Shop will be for adults only (+18).

Any work performed on your bike during open shop is your responsibility.

How much does it cost?

The space is available at a suggested cost of $5/hour for stand time, tools, and assistance.

Where is Open Shop?

Open Shop takes place in the heart of the Recycle & Reuse department, the Bike Works Warehouse. The Warehouse is located at 3715 S Hudson St. Seattle, WA 98118 – follow the driveway to the back of the building (park on the street and walk down the driveway or bike right on up to the front door).

Get a Punch Card

If you plan to use the space frequently then consider grabbing a punch card. Each space on the punch card is worth a full Open Shop Session (that is 3 hours of stand time per punch!). Punch cards are available in two increments:

  • 5 session punch card for $30 ($75 value)
  • 10 session punch card for $50 ($150 value)

You can purchase a punch card in the Warehouse during Open Shop or during Warehouse business hours (Saturdays from noon-5pm). For more information, please contact us!

Windsor Heights

BikeMobile in Windsor Heights - Woodridge - High Point - South Park - New Holly - Van Asselt - Rainier Vista - Yesler

A big blue van is parked at an angle in front of the building. You cannot see the entire van because it is so large.

The BikeMobile will be visiting Windsor Heights in SeaTac every week, all summer long! The BikeMobile will be out in 8 neighborhoods weekly throughout the summer offering free and low cost bike repair for kids and people of all ages.  Look for us throughout South Seattle and at special events by checking out the calendar. We will serve hundreds of youth by providing no cost bike repair and bike education this summer

About the BikeMobile

The BikeMobile is a dream come true for youth and adults in our community. There are many neighborhoods in SE Seattle that aren’t near a bike shop, which means that the people who live in those areas are often unable to keep their bike in working order. Bike Works happens to have plenty of young mechanics who are skilled enough to fix those bikes – they just need a bike shop. That’s where the BikeMobile comes in, rolling around to different neighborhoods and offering summer employment for two youth to give back to their community. Learn more about Job Skills Training by watching the video below!

The Team

The BikeMobile is unique because it is staffed by graduates of the Job Skills Training Program interning with Bike Works staff. This summer, the BikeMobile is staffed by two capable youth who have been around Bike Works for awhile. They are eager mechanics who both see this opportunity as a foundation for their future goals. Stop by the BikeMobile in Windsor Heights and introduce yourself to the team!
