Bike Works – Essential Services!

On March 23rd, Governor Inslee declared a Stay Home, Stay Healthy Order in the state of Washington, ordering that businesses close except for those deemed “essential services“. We are fortunate to live in a state that acknowledges bike repair services as essential – many workers commute by bike in order to provide us with things like medicine, food, and electricity. Opting to commute by bike allows for better social-distancing practices than riding public transit, with the added benefit of some exercise & fresh air while we’re ordered to otherwise stay at home.

Bike Works has been closed to the public for the last 3 weeks, but we’ve been working remotely and behind the scenes.

We are pleased to announce that our bike shop is now open for repairs by appointment – call the shop (206-725-8867) or email Josh to secure your time slot and leave a voice message for a callback if nobody answers!

DO NOT come by the shop without an appointment. In order to maintain social-distancing best practices, we ask that you come by only with an appointment for bike repair or to pick up a bike you’ve purchased online. Bike repair appointments are available 7 days a week, 10 – 6 PM.

We have also launched an online store for you to buy bikes, accessories, and gift cards.

We welcome you to purchase bikes & accessories online. Feel free to call the shop (206-725-8867) with questions about a bike to see if it might be a good fit for you. We’re not able to allow test rides at this time, but we will honor our 30-day return policy if the bike doesn’t work out. You’ll pick up your purchase at our shop in Columbia City! We will disinfect all bikes before handing them over to you – we’ll share more details about our social-distancing and disinfecting practices when we confirm your appointment.

Looking for a specific part for your ride? We’ve also got some components and accessories up for sale on our ebay page – check it out!
