Welcome to Bike Root!

We are a volunteer-run, community DIY bike shop (many kinds of names for this type of shop including club, cooperative, and collective) at the University of Calgary providing the following services:

  • DIY bike repairs
    We provide the space and tools to help you fix and maintain your bicycle for a $20 annual membership.
  • Refurbished bikes for sale
    Check out the #bikes-for-sale channel on our Bike Root Slack workspace where we will post our available inventory. We update this based on our current stock, so keep your eye on this space if you are in the market for a used bicycle.
  • Parts and accessories
    We stock a wide variety of new and used parts as well as accessories for your bicycle at very competitive pricing!
  • Volunteering opportunities
    We are always looking for more volunteers to join our team.  Visit our volunteering page for more details.

Weekly Shop Schedule

Updated when volunteers change availability; check before coming! Last minute schedule changes may happen because we are volunteer run. We apologize for any inconvenience.

For the best/most reliable shop opening times, stop in when more than one volunteer is in the shop.

We are generally closed on recognized holidays.
