Open Shop: Community Repair Space!
Feb 22 @ 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).


Bike Works promotes the bicycle as a vehicle for change to empower youth and build resilient communities. To get involved, consider volunteering or taking a class!

It Saturday doesn’t fit with your schedule then check out another community resource just up the street from Bike Works – The Bikery! They are all about providing space for you to learn how to fix your bike yourself, just like Bike Works. Rad.

Warehouse Open @ Bike Works Warehouse
Feb 22 @ 12:00 pm – 5:00 pm

Come shop at the Warehouse every Wednesday and Saturday from 12 – 5 PM. Members of the public are welcome to dig through bins and browse for as-is bikes, used parts, and accessories.

On Saturdays, the Warehouse is open at the same time as Open Shop, so a great opportunity to find parts for a project and then get some professional advice from one of our Recycle & Reuse mechanics.

The Warehouse is located down the driveway off of S Hudson St, with the Bike Works brick office building on the left side.
