the bike lab

The next Bike Labs are every Saturday in June, 2023, 11:30-2:30. 2023. at
12 Northern Ave, Northampton, MA

Anyone wanting to learn more and/or share what they know about basic bike maintenance and repairs, is welcome to stop by these free informal workshops. If you have questions about fixing flats, understanding gears, bike fit, brake adjustments, suspicious squeaks or creaks, assembling a bike, or riding safely in traffic and in cold, we can problem solve together. We have tools and parts, mostly used. If you have a bike, bring it. If you need a bike, we can help you fix one up for yourself. If you have a mostly-functional bike or parts to donate, you can drop it off during normal Bike Lab hours, or contact Ruthy to make other arrangements. If you want to come to Bike Lab for any reason but your schedule doesn't allow, also contact Ruthy.

we've been collecting bikes to send to Haiti. We are trying to get them to the port in Hampton, Virginia to load onto a boat in late May (2023). We're looking for someone to drive a u-haul, or perhaps a tow-behind-a-truck trailer about 6x12. Also, if you'd like to contribute to fuel costs and repairs for the boat, please consider donating! Thanks!

Need a bike? we have lots to be fixed up, or if I'm out of town, contact *Bikes For All* at

Have a bike to donate? As of winter 2023, I'm collecting solid mtn bikes and wheels, and bmx bikes n wheels, to send to Haiti hopefully some time in April 2023.
