To support the growth of a cycling community in Calgary and to empower both the campus community and local Calgarians in developing their own bike mechanical skills.
Founded in 2008, Bike Root is a 100% student-volunteer-run community bicycle shop located at the University of Calgary and operated as a Student Union sanctioned club.
At Bike Root, the workspace and tools are available to all of our members with a $10 annual membership. Unlike a conventional bike shop, we empower our members and provide them with the skills needed to repair their bikes themselves. A knowledgeable volunteer is always on hand to help guide you through any repairs, and our fully equipped bike shop will provide you with all of the tools and parts necessary to get the job done.
In short, no matter your skill level, we aim to give you the tools and knowledge you will need to keep your and your bike on the road.
