About the Bikery
The Bikery is the Cycles of Change collectively run, not-for-profit community bike shop in Oakland! We are committed to making bikes accessible to everybody. We offer a range of affordable used bikes for sale, repairs, classes, and community events. We also have a repair space where you can sign up and use tools to work on your own bike, and find opportunities to earn a bike, if you cannot afford one! At The Bikery, we believe that bikes are a necessary and creative part of movement building as we work toward social and environmental justice in our community. The Bikery intentionally centers the leadership of people of color, youth, women, queer and trans people, and folks rooted in the Bay Area. We are honored to be able to work together with interns from local high schools to develop skills in bike mechanics, transportation justice, environmental stewardship, and experience participating in a collectively-run business. Please drop by to check us out!
The shop offers the following services:
Used Bicycle Sales: Expert mechanics refurbish and sell bikes that have been donated in order to support the project. We can also create a custom bike for you! Bikery staff and interns work together to create new bikes for sale every day!
Bike Repairs: We offer affordable repairs that will meet all your needs.
Youth Earn-a-bike Program: Young people can come and learn repair skills, and earn a bike that they can keep at no cost!
Oakland UpCycle Adult commuter program: Safety course and on road training for low-income Oakland residents who are in need of transportation. Upon completion, participants get a bike that has been fully refurbished and equipped for bike commuting.
Community Repair Space: We have a number of work stands and a full range of bicycle tools that can be used in the shop by visitors working on their own repairs. Youth interns and staff are often available to answer questions and help folks learn to do repairs themselves.
Sugarbelly (currently not scheduled): A night for women, transgender and genderqueer folks to learn to work on bikes, eat yummies, make bike crafts & build community through bike love!
Classes and Events: We have a range of ongoing classes and events offered to our community at low cost. Please send us an email to be on our mailing list, or check out our events calendar
Cycles of Change Oakland community Bike Shop serves as a place where you can donate/recycle your old bikes and parts. In fact, every bike that we have has been donated by someone like you! We are especially in need of useable bikes that can be redistributed through our youth Earn-a-Bike or adult UpCycle programs, or resold to support our operating expenses. Donations can be dropped off whenever the shop is open (see schedule above). Thank you!
The Bikery always needs volunteers to help refurbish bikes and contribute to the success of this amazing project. We are in need of volunteers who have the skills to: repair donated bikes, organize a bike drive, spread the word about us, or fundraise! If you are passionate about any of these things, or have an idea you'd like to suggest, please get in touch with us!
