The 2023 Weekend Clinic Season will run from the 1st weekend in April to the second weekend in November

At our clinics, we provide access to professional tools and repair stands for you to fix your own bike. We don't charge for use of our equipment, but encourage guests to donate what they can to help us replenish our tools and supplies. Our clinics are run entirely by dedicated volunteers, who show up each weekend and donate their time to fulfill The Bike House's mission of creating a space where all people can learn about, work on, and enjoy bikes. Our volunteers come with varying skill levels, but what they share is the desire to help.
Please note, before attending one of our clinics, we encourage folks to spend a few minutes researching their bike's particular issues and to bring any repair parts needed, as we do not sell replacement parts (for those, we recommend nearby businesses such as Annie's Ace Hardware and Gearin' Up).
