WRENCH/Orioles Bike Cage Community Bike Bazaar 12-4 Sat, May 23rd.

Welcome to the WRENCH


 Open Shop Drop-In    Thursdays, Noon – 5:30      

Once a week participants drop in to fix their bike or build a bike with the assistance of WRENCH staff and volunteers. Everyone is welcome to participate. To ensure that money is not a barrier to accessing services, bicycles & parts are offered by suggested donation (sliding scale) or in exchange for volunteer time (average 4.5 hours for a bicycle).

 Note:  If just taking parts cash donation mandatory. No “swapping” of bikes.

Volunteer Shop        Saturdays, 2:00 – 4:30  

Participants build skills by stripping, recycling and sorting bicycles & parts or working on other tasks that support WRENCH programming. Once per month Volunteer Shop hours are expanded to include volunteer orientation workshops.

Next volunteer Orientation Saturday June 6th, 1 – 2 pm

Check out Events&News page for more volunteer opportunities and outreach programming.

E-mail volunteer@thewrench.ca to sign up for WRENCH volunteer email updates.
