The Bike House is a community-based bicycle repair co-op in Washington, DC. We run weekly clinics, staffed by volunteers, where people can come, use tools, and learn how to do their own repairs.
Our mission is to build a place where all people can learn about, work on, and enjoy bikes. We provide bicycle maintenance resources and education through our weekend clinics, mobile bike clinic, and beginner and advanced mechanics classes.
We are a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization run entirely by volunteers.

The Bike House provides bicycle maintenance resources and education through our weekend clinics.
At our clinics, you'll find dedicated volunteers and professional tools and resources to fix your own bike.
You'll leave with dirty hands, but hopefully a better understanding of bike maintenance and repairs.
INTRODUCTION TO BIKE MECHANICS CLASSES
Due to COVID-19, The Bike House is not currently conducting in-person classes. Sign up for our email list to receive updates.
The Bike House offers beginner mechanics classes for people who are interested in bikes but haven’t taken the plunge into working on them. Our four-week course uses a hands-on approach and is designed to get students comfortable working on their own bikes. Instructors cover basic bike maintenance, including flat tire repair, cleaning and lubing your chain, changing brake pads, adjusting derailleurs, and truing wheels.
