The Wheel House Community Bike Shop co-op is a center for all cyclists and bike riders, but welcome those who may have an interest in starting to bike, getting back into cycling, or are looking for biking as a means of transportation. Everyone is welcome with a goal of inclusiveness and reflecting our diverse community.
Wheelhouse Community Bike Shop’s goals are to expand bicycle usage and knowledge by providing public access to educational materials, workspace, and tools/parts through a member owned and supported central location, and invite the community to Learn, Repair, and Ride.
Volunteer opportunities are focused on refurbishing bikes to be donated to people in need. We do allow teens to volunteer, but they need to be accompanied by a parent or guardian. We have some non-mechanical tasks that tweens and teens could perform (e.g. cleaning bikes), but for the most part, there is a degree of training that is needed and the students need close supervision to stay on task.
