  2. Donations: We accept donations of adult bicycles and components, regardless of condition.

    Kids bikes should be donated to Sport Central.

  3. Sales: We sell second-hand bicycles. We do not do sales over the phone or email—you must physically come into our shop during our regular shop hours to take a look at our current stock. You can buy bicycles that have already been refurbished by our volunteer mechanics, or you can purchase a donated bike as-is and work on it yourself with our guidance. We also sell new and used parts (tires, patch kits, freewheels, chains, brake pads, etc.—the common stuff).

  4. Rentals: We rent bicycles and bike cargo trailers.

    Bike rentals are also available from a few commercial bike shops in Edmonton. We are aware of the following: Velocity Cycle (780-466-8133) rents hybrid/cruiser bikes; easy-pedal (780-975-7629) rents hybrid and electric bikes; River Valley Adventure Co. (780-995-7347) rents mountain bikes for day use only.

  5. Hours: Our hours of operation for BikeWorks are posted in the top right corner of every page on our website. EBC staff may also have office hours throughout the day; please call us if you have a question: 780.433.BIKE (2453).

  6. Location: You can find us in the alley of 10047 80 Ave, Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. We don’t have a front door so make sure you go through the alley!  Here’s a map and a virtual tour.

  7. Bike racks: Visit our bike rack page for more info on temporary and permanent bike racks.

  8. Work shop: We run a community bike shop, called BikeWorks. If you need to tune up your bike for spring but don’t know how to adjust your seat, or you need to overhaul a rusty bicycle, or you’re looking to acquire a beater to ride around town, come down to our shop.  Our trained mechanics will teach you what you need to know, even if you’ve never turned a wrench in your life. We have all the tools and the know-how to get you rolling. We often run formal courses, but you can also just drop-in any time we’re open to learn how to fix your bike.

  9. Cost: We’re cheap.  EBC members are charged $2/hour for shop use, non-members are charged $5/hour. [You can become an EBC member right now!]  Shop use includes a bike stand, full-access to our complete set of tools (more than most bike shops carry), as well as help from our volunteer mechanics. We have a large selection of used (and sometimes new) parts, which we generally sell for next-to nothing. Full bicycles are usually between $50-$150, depending on their condition.

  10. Etc.: You’ve still got more questions?  You can .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address), or you can call us at 780-433-BIKE (that’s 780-433-2453).
