THE BIKE HOUSE
SUPPORTING DC'S BIKE COMMUNITY SINCE 2009
THE 2023 SEASON WILL RUN FROM THE 1ST WEEKEND IN APRIL TO THE SECOND WEEKEND IN NOVEMBER
During our open season, you can find us in Petworth on Saturdays for 12-3, and Brookland on Sundays from 11-1
The Bike House is a community-based bicycle repair co-op in Washington, DC - with no physical location. We run weekly clinics around the city, 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
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.
