Let's bike!

Welcome to the Corvallis Bicycle Collective!

Our mission is to enhance safety, sustainability, and happiness through bicycling. 

Through our Bicycle Shop anyone can learn how to maintain or repair their bicycle using our tools and guidance for free. You can also shop from a wide selection of affordable used bicycles and new and used parts and accessories.

We're active in the Corvallis community promoting access to bicycles and support for cycling as a way of life, including our Ask-A-Wrench booth at the Corvallis Farmer's Market, our Annual Bike Swap, and participation at sustainability, health, and cycling events year round,

We can't do it alone. We're deeply appreciative of all donations, whether financial support or donated bicycles, parts, accessories, and tools you're no longer using. We also rely on our volunteers in the shop, in the community, or behind the scenes.

Fix your bike for Free!

At our shop, you’ll find five fully-stocked tool chests and bike stands. These stands are available for free for anyone to use. No specialized skills are necessary. We want you to be able to fix and take care of your bicycle and our mechanics and volunteers are on hand to guide you through most any repair.

Bicycle Fluency Taught Here

We occasionally offer classes. Check our calendar for upcoming opportunities.

Our volunteers go further

Volunteers of any skill level are always gratefully welcomed. We need your help to take apart bicycles, put them back together, organize, clean, and greet others. Volunteering provides a unique opportunity to learn all aspects of bicycle repairs and maintenance at your own pace and with veteran help on hand. Several volunteers have gone on to employment at bicycle shops. If you’re interested in volunteering, drop in during our open hours, check out our calendar for for upcoming opportunities, or sign up to receive updates on volunteer opportunities.

Items for Sale

At our bicycle shop, we sell used and new parts, tools, and accessory as well as a selection of used bicycles. Some of our bicycles are "ready to ride," while others still need a little work, which we're always glad to help you with. Our inventory is always changing, so stop by frequently!

Serving Our Cycling Community

ANNUAL BIKE SWAP

Each September since 2009, the Corvallis Bicycle Collective has helped get bicycles out of the garage and into new hands through our annual Bike Swap. This event has grown into our largest fundraiser of the year. We provide sellers an opportunity to turn underused bicycles into cash through consignment sales while getting buyers the thrill of a new ride.

SPRING ROLL

Each Spring the Corvallis Bicycle Collective participates in the Corvallis Spring Roll helping children fix up their bicycles and pump up their tires before and after the big ride. We also conduct a free children’s bike swap where kids can swap their working bicycle for one that fits them better.

ASK-A-WRENCH

At the Corvallis Saturday Farmers’ Market “Ask-a-Wrench” volunteers service bicycles and dispensed bicycle wisdom while promoting our organization.

BIKE MONTH

May is Bike Month, and during Bike Month we partner with the City of Corvallis and its “Get There Corvallis” events. This includes bicycle repair workshop and demonstrations at the public library and a morning providing a breakfast snacks to cycling commuters rolling through the Corvallis Skate Park on their way to work.

EMPOWERMENT BUCKS

We wish we could provide everyone with a free bicycle, but we know that there’s some in our community whose need for two-wheeled transportation is urgent while their means are limited. To address this need, we deliver “Empowerment Bucks” to local nonprofits, including Community Outreach and Jackson Street Youth Shelter. These service organizations can provide these vouchers to the individuals they serve, enabling them to purchase bicycles or parts to keep their bicycles running.

YOUTH VOLUNTEER CORPS

Since 2012, every summer the Corvallis Bicycle Collective partners with Corvallis Parks and Recreation to inspire the next generation of bicycle mechanics to learn the joys of fixing up bicycles. For six weeks in the summer, young volunteers absorb as much bicycle knowledge as we can dispense. In return, they turn out as many fixed bikes, patched flats, and repairs as they can manage. Everyone benefits.

PEDALPALOOZA AND WORLD CAR FREE DAY

Pedalpalooza (formerly the Coalition’s Car Free Celebration) is an annual event put on by the Corvallis Sustainability Coalition showcasing motor-free transportation. The event’s focus is always shifting, but we are always glad to celebrate, contribute, and to help participants fixing up their bicycles.

On World Car Free Day (September 22), we help the City of Corvallis and Corvallis Sustainability Coalition celebrate bicycle and pedestrian commuters by staffing a bicycle breakfast at the Corvallis Skate Park.

 

Come participate
in all of our
fun activities, for bike enthusiasts of all ages!
