We are a volunteer-run bike co-op, partially funded by the City of Mount Rainier, and have been around since 2005.
We offer open shops where you can come and use our tools or get help working on your bike - we won't fix it for you, but will guide you if you need it. We also provide mechanics classes, a wimmin and girls night, and a variety of rides and social events. We have a wide range of used parts available in return for donations, and we also have used bikes, both ready to ride and needing to be built.
