Membership, Services & Community

The Bike Root offers a host of different services within the campus community and more broadly around our city.

Membership to the Bike Root is open to anyone. That means whether you are  student, faculty or staff at the University of Calgary, a Calgarian, or a visitor to our campus or city you are eligible to purchase a Bike Root membership.

Membership is $10 for 1 year. This gives you access to the shop and all the tools within it. Parts and bicycle components sold through the shop are not included in your membership, but as a community bike shop, we aim to keep our prices low and bike repair affordable.

Through our presence both on an off campus, The Bike Root aims to foster community through the promotion of environmental sustainability and healthy lifestyles. This is done through a variety of ways and we are always looking for new ways to engage with our members and the community. Keep an eye on the events page and postings for upcoming workshops, events, and community initiatives.
