Bike Again

Bike Again is a volunteer-run, do-it-yourself bike shop. We provide the space, tools, and some know-how, you do the work. Bike Again aims to get more people on bikes, empower them to repair their bikes, provide a place for people to bring bikes they no longer use, and to create community centred around a shared love of the humble bicycle.  

We began in the summer of 2000 and through thousands of volunteer hours, we have repaired and loaned at least 2000 bikes!

About Shifting Gears

Shifting Gears (formerly The Women and Trans bike repair collective) seeks to create a space that is positive and non-intimidating to learn about and work on your bike. It is a space to explore bike mechanics and learn from other members, as well as a space to access tools and supplies to fix your bike. We aim to 'shift gears' from a cis male-dominated cycling and repair culture. All femme, trans, non-binary and gender non-conforming folks welcome. 

Shifting Gears is held at the Bike Again location at 5664 Charles Street.

Donations

Donations

If you would like to donate a bike, please leave it in the bike rack in the Bike Again driveway and our volunteers will bring it in. Please bring any parts donations during our open hours and refrain from ‘dumping’ anything in our driveway. 

All bikes received at Bike Again are donated by the public to divert bikes from landfill. We do not purchase bikes, nor do we do trades. Bikes are either refurbished and made available to the public in exchange for a suggested donation or stripped for parts to reuse. Any funds received contribute to the running of the program. If a bike is beyond repair, it is recycled.
