The AMS Bike Co-op

The Bike Co-op is a student-run organization dedicated to making UBC a better place for cyclists and their bikes. You can become a member for 6 hours of volunteer work, or $15 for students/ $20 for faculty, staff, and community members. With membership, and one night of volunteering at a Tuesday P&Y party from 6-9pm, you can get access to 50-100 public bikes. The Purple and Yellow (P & Y) fleet is located throughout campus. Grab one, and ride to where you want to go. When you’re done with it, lock the bike back up and leave it there for the next person to use.

Bike Co-op membership also allows you to receive a 10% discount off new parts at the Bike Kitchen(the Co-op’s retail shop), as well as shop time and mechanical help. The Co-op also provides free one-hour Bike Care Clinics (Wednesdays) and a comprehensive bike repair course (Saturdays) for $20.00.

Call 604.822.BIKE (604.822.2453) for more information, or drop by the bike hub, located on the north side of the SUB (beside the lower entrance).

The Bike Kitchen

The Bike Kitchen is located on the north side of the SUB, beside the lower SUB entrance. This fully-equipped bike repair and retail shop is a non-profit project of the AMS Bike Co-op and was established to help the UBC community keep their bikes maintained for a reasonable rate.

The Kitchen has a wide range of new and used parts, as well as new and used bikes for sale. For just $7.50/hr, all campus cyclists can use the Bike Kitchen tools and facilities to repair their own bikes. For $15/hr cyclists can receive instructions from a bike mechanic on how to do the repairs themselves. You can also do the standard bike shop drop-off for your other repair needs.

Stop by the Kitchen anytime you think your bike might be in need of a little tender loving care. Open from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m., 7 days a week. Hours change seasonally.

Call 604.82.SPEED or visit their website.
