Mobile Repair Unit

 

We bring the bike shop to you.

Our Mobile Repair Unit brings our knowledgeable, friendly mechanics and their tools to meighborhoods, schools, and events in the greater Burlington area -- by bicycle.

 


COMMUNITY BIKE REPAIR

 

We partner with Spectrum's Multicultural Youth Program to train teens in basic bike repair and maintenance, and then provide work experience with the Mobile Repair Unit.

In summer 2017, the Mobile Repair Unit and youth mechanics-in-training visited Franklin Square and South Meadows throughout the summer to provide safety checks and free bike repairs to youth and residents. Check out the Burlington Free Press piece about it here. 

2018 and 2019 has seen us providing services to these communities and more.

Thank you to Burlington Parks, Recreation, and Waterfront's Nutritional and Recreation Drop-In Programs for hosting us.
