Bike Farm is an all volunteer-run collective dedicated to every aspect of bicycle education, from safe commuting to repair. Our mission is to provide a space where people can learn about the bicycle and build community around promoting sustainable transportation. We strive to demystify the bicycle in order to impact the city in a healthy and positive way.
Using the Shop
Bike Farm is a do-it-yourself bike shop staffed entirely by volunteers. Members and non-members are welcome to drop by– no appointment necessary. Find out more about memberships here. For non-members, it costs $5 per hour to use the stands, tools, and guidance from our mechanics.

In Los Angeles, the Petersen Automotive Museum is a go-to destination for us staffers at Automobile, and there isn’t one of us who hasn’t wiled away an afternoon there immersed in all it has to offer.
