Welcome to the Corvallis Bicycle Collective!
Our mission is to enhance health, safety, sustainability, and happiness through bicycling.
Anyone can learn how to maintain or repair a bicycle at our Bicycle Shop. Tool use and guidance are 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 neighborhood livability, including our Ask-A-Wrench booth at the Corvallis Farmer's Market, our Annual Bike Swap, Open Streets Corvallis, Corvallis Spring Roll, 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 volunteers in the shop, in the community, or behind the scenes.
Your support improves access to bicycles for everyone.

EMPOWERMENT BUCKS POP-UP BIKE SHOPS - Spring 2018
Getting bikes under people takes effort and we're the types to put in a little extra. Prior to Corvallis Spring Roll, we're setting up temporary pop-up bike shops at Lincoln and Garfield elementary schools so kids who otherwise can't afford a bike will get one with Empowerment Bucks! Thank you to Benton County Health Navigators and King Legacy Advisory Board for supporting access and equity in bicycling.
Look for signups for related volunteer opportunities, too.
Thank you Robert and Hedy Snow Fund of The Oregon Community Foundation for funding a new mobile repair unit and related outreach. More adults and children will be empowered by bicycle because of you. Look for the new Ask-a-Wrench trailer in spring 2018!

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!

City of corvallis Transportation options
The City of Corvallis encourages its residents and visitors to reduce the number of trips made by single-occupancy vehicles ("SOVs"). Alternative modes of transportation, such as bicycling, buses, walking, skating, and carpooling or vanpooling, as well as telecommuting, can reduce traffic congestion and provide benefits to individuals and to the community.
