BikeWorks North and BikeWorks South are fully-equipped, volunteer-run community bike workshops. We have all the tools (including specialty bicycle tools) needed to repair and maintain your bicycle, and mechanics to teach you how to do it. We have a vast selection of used and new parts. We also have many used bicycles for sale, starting from $10.

A bit about BikeWorks…

  • BikeWorks is a program of the Edmonton Bicycle Commuters Society (EBC). It is the oldest community bike shop program in North America
  • You can learn how to fix your bicycle at BikeWorks: either of the north or south locations!
  • We will not fix your bike for you. We will teach you and help you to do it yourself.
  • You don’t need to know anything about bike mechanics: our volunteer mechanics will teach you.
  • Just drop in during our public hours: no appointments, registration, or membership is necessary. We’re open to everyone—just drop in during shop hours.
  • You can donate used bikes or parts.
  • You can buy refurbished, used bicycles at BikeWorks.
  • You can buy used bike parts at BikeWorks. You can buy a limited selection of new parts as well.
  • You can rent bikes and cargo trailers from BikeWorks.
  • Due to a lack of required safety equipment and facilities, we do not allow bleeding of hydraulics in our facilities. You can change your pads and perform other maintenance, but you will be asked to service any hydraulic fluids off-site. Local bike shops will bleed your brakes for as little as $30/brake.
  • We are limited in our ability to service some modern, high-end components (e.g. pressfit bottom brackets), as well as suspension. If you’re uncertain, please contact us to confirm.
  • We do not allow combustion-engine equipped vehicles in our facility, including gasoline powered bikes. No exceptions.
  • We will not check stock of bikes or parts over the phone or email—you must physically come into our shop during our regular shop hours to take a look at our current stock. We are not a commercial retailer, and we do not have enough volunteers to check availability for you.
  • You cannot store your bike or personal property at EBC. Anything left at BikeWorks is treated as a donation and available for immediate sale. We will not place holds on bikes or parts.
  • More questions? Check our FAQ.

BikeWorks North

Don’t know anything about bicycle repairs? No problem! Qualified, volunteer mechanics are on duty to assist you in any way you need, from finding a bike that’s right for you, or adjusting your seat, or fixing a flat, right up to building an entire bike from just parts.

Using the shop only costs $2/hour for members, including assistance from mechanics and access to all our tools. Non-members pay $5/hour.

Low-cost Bicycles

We offer refurbished bicycles for sale at BikeWorks. As-is adult bicycles start from about $40 and up and tuned up bicycles start at around $85 and up. As-is children’s bikes with tires 24″ or smaller start at $10 each. Our goal is to see more people on bicycles! Sizes and availability depends on donations in stock and volunteer time, but if you’re in the market for a vintage cruiser, classic road bike or a pre-loved mountain bike, come down to see what we have on hand. We do not have the ability to help you over the phone.

Please do not try to haggle with us. We will work hard to get you riding within your budget, and if a particular bike or part is beyond your budget, we will offer you something more affordable. But we are a non-profit organization, and sales revenue pays our rent. Attempting to abuse our goodwill may result in being asked to leave.


We absolutely will not take donations in exchange for discounts or other goods: this would make us into a fence for stolen goods. We will gladly take your donations gratis.

Free public phone charging stations, free Wi-Fi

We have 4 free phone charging stations at BikeWorks South, including charging cables for iPhones (both 30-pin connectors for the iPhone 4 and older, and Lightning connectors for newer phones), modern non-Apple phones (using the standard micro-USB connector), and mini-USB cables for charging your bike lights. We also have free public WiFi at BikeWorks South, and Shaw Open inside both shops.


We often offer bike maintenance courses throughout the year, but you can come in any time we’re open to learn about fixing bikes.

Our popular course, Hands-on Intro to Bike Maintenance, returns this year with multiple dates and locations to choose from. This 3-hour class is a great place to start if you have little or no experience working on bikes and includes:

  • cleaning and lubrication,
  • how to fix a flat tire,
  • basic brake and gearing adjustments, and
  • how to spot small problems before they become big problems.

The Spoke is a free program for youth aged 12-17. Over the course of a 6- to 8-week program, participants learn how to repair and maintain a bike, from start to finish. Each participant leaves The Spoke with their very own bicycle!

Volunteers work with youth, providing mentorship while teaching skills. (read more…) »


We greatly value the importance of welcoming and supporting all people at BikeWorks. BikeWorks should be a safe place for anyone to visit regardless of age, gender, race, sexual orientation, nationality, language, or ability. EBC actively addresses any behaviour that is disrespectful towards any shop user. All patrons, volunteers, and staff must treat all other shop users with respect. (read more…) »

Financial donations

If you would like to contribute financially to EBC, please see our Donations page.

No dumping

Please do not dump your used bikes at BikeWorks outside of public hours. If you need to make special arrangements, please contact us first. Include a description of your donations (including make & model, and photo if possible). (read more…) »

Our rental bikes are suitable for youth or adults who are looking for a bike while in Edmonton for a weekend or a few weeks to do some commuting or recreational cycling. (read more…) »
