Our flagship program is Open Shop, a free, DIY, bike-maintenance skillshare. We provide the tools and guidance needed to keep your bike working so you can keep riding. Our goal isn't to fix your bike and send you on your way, it's to help you fix your own bike. Open Shop is also a great chance to hang out with your fellow Boston cyclists, trade stories of biking adventures, and share your own knowledge. Don't have to work on your own bike this time, but want to learn? Volunteers are always welcome to learn by doing, by working on one of our fleet bikes. Come join us sometime!


Fall Mechanic Class Series

For the next six weeks, CommonWheels will be hosting a class series, each fousing on a different aspect of bicycle maintenance and mechanics.

You are welcome to bring your own bike to learn to work on, or just come for the skills demonstration!

Each class will be two hours, with an extra hour after for outstanding projects and practice.

Join us for one class, two classes, or all of them!  Space will be limited, so email to register!
