About Us

Our Mission: The Bikery uses collaborative, hands-on education in bicycles and cycling to liberate movement and increase access to knowledge, and to share the revelation that all forms of knowledge can be earned without permission.


Although we look a lot like a bike shop, we are not one. When you visit our shop we will not fix your bike for you, but instead will help you fix your own bike. Learn more about our shop services here.


We are an all-volunteer run, non-profit community bike project located in Seattle, in Hiawatha Place Art Lofts. We are here to provide the tools and resources to help you learn about your bike and fix it yourself. We strive to create an inviting framework to engage people from all backgrounds regardless of gender, sexual orientation, race, class, age, or ability. Together we can define and implement our vision of community and bicycle culture.

Upcoming Events and Classes

July 19 and August 3, 7:00PM: Build Night!
Come by the shop to volunteer in a relaxed and social environment! Help us work on shop bikes, shop tasks, and get to know each other. All are welcome, feel free to bring a beverage and a snack.


August 2, 6:00PM: Night Out on the Hiawatha block
All local businesses will be open (including The Bikery), people in the community will be out, and it will be general block-party-esque fun. Come down to represent the shop, meet neighbors, and hang out.


August 4, 6-8:00PM: Bike Night at SAM!
We'll be there! Volunteers needed - email marley@thebikery.org if you can help out with basic repairs on behalf of The Bikery (we're hoping to have 5). Details

Please visit the calendar page to see our full schedule.

We're Growing! Help Wanted!

As of May 2016, we're looking to expand our team so we can do more for the community and ensure further stability within our organization! We're really excited about it and we've got a ton of cool plans, but we'll need your help to be able to do it all. If you're interested, email volunteer@thebikery.org with some info about yourself, your experience with us thus far (if any - not required!), what you could bring to The Bikery to make it even more awesome, and any further questions you may have. Click the links below for descriptions of the positions we're looking to fill!
