We’ll be closed Monday for the holiday, but you can still find us at the Heritage Festival in Hawrelak Park from noon-4pm, doing free minor tune-ups at the main bike lock-up. See you there!

Hey everyone,

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so many things (especially images) aren’t working, and a lot of the information on the site you’re looking at now is out-of-date (it was copied from the old site a long time ago).

In the meantime, please contact us on Facebook or by e-mail to confirm anything you’d like to know.

Thanks for your patience!

BikeWorks North (9305 111 Ave, entrance on the west side, next to the garage) will be open this Saturday from 1-5pm! We’ll be operating in a limited capacity through the month of April, as we complete our renovations (more…)

As EBC prepares for it’s exciting expansion this spring, it’s time to find someone who can take the lead! (read more…) »

EBC is very pleased to announce that long-time plans for a second BikeWorks community bike shop are now becoming a reality.

An excellent space at 9305-111 Avenue has been acquired and work is set to start in February in preparation for the April grand opening. The second shop, BikeWorks North, will bring the valuable services offered by EBC north of the river. (read more…) »

In solidarity with Wikipedia, reddit, Google and many other websites, the EBC website was blacked out on January 18, 2012 from approximately 6:00am through 6:00pm MST (1300-0100 UTC). EBC otherwise operated normally during that time.

The action was in protest of two proposed bills, Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA) and Protect IP Act (PIPA), which are working their way through Congress in the United States. (read more…) »

BikeWorks now has a basic repair stand complete with a pump and essential tools that will be located outside of our gate and available 24 hours a day! So if you’re a little low on air and the shop is closed, you can still swing by and pump your ride.
