About

We are a registered non-profit society dedicated to making everyday cycling in Edmonton safer and more widespread by providing bicycle services, education, and civic representation. We promote the bicycle as a healthy, economical, and ecologically sound mode of transportation.

Program Description

Learn how to fix your bike and explore the city by bike. Buy a refurbished bike, or donate a disused one. We create positive volunteer and service environments for cyclists, and advocate for a vibrant city. Established as a non-profit society in 1980, we operate two volunteer-run community bike workshops, provide training for children, youth and adults, host events with community partners year-round, and represent cyclists at City Hall. We work with children, youth and adults to make cycling accessible for everyone, because we believe that an Edmonton where anyone can choose to cycle is an Edmonton that’s better for all.

The Spoke is a bike building program and so much more! Youth learn how to work in a shop, learn mechanical skills, and learn about cycling in a city. Youth are mentored as they build a bike over the course of 7 evenings.
