The Third Hand Bicycle Co-op offers and supports a variety of programs to promote cycling awareness, safety, and maintenance. Programs are designed and run by co-op volunteers and members. Please continue to check this area of the web site as well as the calendar for specific times as the program offering will continue to grow.

Community Shop
Come work with other bicycle enthusiasts of all skill levels in a friendly setting. Either for technical advice, to share project ideas, or volunteer, our open shop time is a large part of the Co-op. This co-operative came to existence because of people coming together. In order to preserve this both in spirit, and action, we offer these times for cyclists to get together.

Volunteer Night
Come volunteer and work on projects for the co-op. Tune up donated bikes for sale, or help with our random projects, like building and reorganizing the parts shelves. After you become a member ($25 or 4 hours volunteering) you can earn co-op credit for your work and earn parts or bicycles.

Bicycle Assistance
Bicycle maintenance assistance is available from the cooperatives volunteer staff and members buring open shop hours. Volunteers will walk you through a bicycle check-up and assist with necessary repairs.

Organized Community Rides

Bikes are for riding. The Third Hand Bicycle Co-op believes organized rides are a great way to promote cycling awareness and safety as well as an opportunity for individuals to meet other cycling enthusiasts. Currently, there are no regularly scheduled events. Their times and dates are published through our web site calender and email listserve postings.

Maintenance and Safety Workshops (Check Calendar and News for upcoming information)
Co-op members and volunteer staff are currently developing a curriculum covering a variety of bicycle maintenance and safety topics. This extends, but is not limited to, bicycle basics, troubleshooting, maintenance. The Third Hand Bicycle Co-op is in need of skilled mechanics and workshop leaders to plan, develop, and lead these workshops.
