Welcome to the WRENCH

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
