Twice a month we open our doors after hours (6:30pm to 9:30pm) to women, trans and queer identifying people to use the shop.

We provide valuable and rewarding work experience for youth in our community. Community partners include Broadway Youth Resource Centre, Genesis School, Total Education Secondary, Pacific Community Resources Society, Aboriginal Youth Empowerment Program, and many more.
OCBC is currently on hiatus. Please check back here for updates on this program.
OCBC provides a comprehensive bike training program for youth that includes bike safety skills, road safety and awareness, basic bicycle mechanics and the overall promotion of a healthy and safe cycling lifestyle. By participating in our program, participants become confident and safe cyclists, and ambassadors for this lifestyle within their communities. In addition, we use the bicycle as a tool to teach kids about the environment, health and well-being. We seek to make the street safer for young people in order to encourage the next generation of cyclists.

We wish to acknowledge the ancestral, traditional, and unceded territories of the Coast Salish People and in particular the Musqueam, Tsleil-Waututh, Stó:lo and Skxwú7mesh peoples on whose land we stand. Keeping our shop environment welcoming and comfortable for everyone is our top priority. We believe that everyone deserves respect. While using the resources of Our Community Bikes we ask that you
• Respect the diversity of folks who use the space.
• Respect the physical and emotional boundaries of each individual.
• Be mindful of your word choices and conversation topics.
• Respect the names and pronouns of everyone. Allow people the space to define themselves.
• Be accountable for your own actions and recognize your own privilege and personal biases.
• Be open to feedback and discussion.
If someone in the space does not follow this policy, they will be kindly asked to leave and can return after taking a break and checking back in when they are ready.
We believe that everyone should feel comfortable doing D.I.Y. repairs regardless of ability, age, gender, identity, income, or sexual orientation.
