Our 28-Hour Repair-a-thon is this weekend! Visit us at BikeWorks South any time between 1pm on Saturday and 5pm on Sunday. Yes, even a 2am, you can come by after your Fringe play, late-night pizza, or last call at the Next Act and fix up your bike, buy a used bike (there’s some beauties available right now), or just hang out in a friendly space. We’ll be operating as normal; we just won’t be closing!

Alex, our longtime BikeWorks Coordinator, is leaving shortly for a new opportunity. We’re sad to see him go, and will miss the work, energy, and personal presence that he’s brought to the organization over the last six years.
It’ll be a tough job to replace him, but we’re looking! If you’ve got the experience and you’re passionate about making Edmonton a better, more livable city, and you think bicycles are a great tool to push us towards that goal, please consider applying for this job. (read more…) »

Our old, archived website is back online (mostly). You can access it (including the bike registry) at http://edmontonbicyclecommuters.ca/
The old site will remain available for reference, but we’ll be moving content and services, such as the registry, to the new site over the coming weeks.

Sorry for the recent website troubles. Our host updated their software, which caused our ancient website to break. We weren’t quite ready to launch our newly re-designed website, so many things (especially images) aren’t working, and a lot of the information on the site you’re looking at now is out-of-date (it was copied from the old site a long time ago).
Thanks for your patience!
