Open Shop: Community Repair Space
Jun 23 @ 12:00 pm – 5:00 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 hours (Saturdays from noon-5pm). For more information, please contact us!
