The Pedal Depot has permanently closed!
We sold some new parts/accessories and helped people to fix their bikes. The rest of the time staff were there training and working with volunteers, building bikes both for sale and for the PEDALs for the People program.
Pedal Depot was launched in the winter of 2006. In the middle of July 2009 a dedicated group of volunteers helped to move the Depot yet again (3 times in 2 years) to a new space. We were at the 1830 Ontario Street location until we moved out on December 2014. The Depot functioned as an educational space, warehouse and workshop. If you need repairs done, please visit Our Community Bikes.
Women On Wheels is now held at Our Community Bikes due to the Pedal Depot being closed.
If you are new to the organization, come to one of our Volunteer Orientations. These are held the second Tuesday of every month at Our Community Bikes. We will give you a tour of the shop, a run down of how the organization functions and hopefully you’ll get a good idea of where and how you’ll fit in. If you are already familiar with the shops and anti-oppressive work drop by either shop and ask a staff member to fit you in the calendar.
Support can come in a number of different forms, from donations of cash money (for charitable tax receipts!) to old bikes and parts to snacks to volunteer time, we love it all. We have made a Wishlist that you can check out of presents that we sure could use or our Support page for more information on how to help us continue to do the voodoo that we do.
