THE BIKE HOUSE
SUPPORTING DC'S BIKE COMMUNITY SINCE 2009
Bike House is a 100% volunteer run organization. We host weekend clinics where you can use our free tools to fix your bikes and work with our volunteers if you have a question on how to do something. We also run classes for those interested in learning more about bike maintenance.
We are always looking for more volunteers, so if you are interested subscribe to our site and attend our next volunteer orientation!

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
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.
