Bicycle Resource Center

Update!

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Bicycle Resource Center is closed to the public for repairs. We are, however, still accepting donations by appointment only. Please contact us to schedule an appointment. 

The Bicycle Resource Center (BRC) is our flagship project.  This is a hands-on bicycle workshop where Chainbreaker members who have gone through one of our training programs help others get a used bike and/or learn how to repair and tune it up.  Since we aren’t a service-based organization, we don’t do repairs or tune-ups in the same way that most bike shops do.  At Chainbreaker, we don’t do anything for anyone.  If you have a bike that you need to fix or you need a bike to ride and you can’t afford to pay for it, stop by the shop and we will guide you through the process of becoming a member and getting a bike and/or fixing it up.

If you don’t have time to work on your own bike,or you don’t want to get your hands dirty, we suggest visiting a local bike shop, or looking through classified ads and at yard sales. We can give you recommendations of places to look and what to look for.

We try to keep our limited resources open to people who honestly can’t afford to buy a new or used bike somewhere else. So if you can afford to buy a new or used bike, please do so.

Donate to the BRC!

Donations of bikes, parts, equipment and tools are what allow the Bicycle Resource Center to function.  We will gratefully accept donations of any bike or bike parts that can be refurbished and made useable again.  We can also use donations of anything on our BRC wishlist.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we are currently accepting donations by appointment only. If you have any questions or large donations, please contact us before bringing them in.
