What We Do
Open Shop is your time to work on your bike! We have the tools, parts, & expertise to help you repair and maintain most bicycles. We strive to cultivate a Do-It-Together environment where you hold the tools! Make an appointment here.
Open Shop is also a perfect opportunity to donate bikes, parts, or funds to help keep this thing rolling.
Note: patrons under-18 must be accompanied by an adult.
When the weather’s good, we hold community bike rides. Rides are casual and welcoming, focused on biking within Manchester. We leave from our shop at 35 Elm St.
Keep an eye on our Events page for more info!
We sell refurbished bikes – mostly basic transportation bikes (and some higher end) – in adult sizes.
We also carry used (and some new) parts to fix your ride and get you out the door, safely & affordably.
We offer affordable lights, locks, and helmets to keep you and your bike safe.
Note: We don’t buy bikes or accept trades, but we gladly accept donations! No shop credit given for donations, only gratitude and good will!
Earn a Bike
Through our partnership with Elliot Health Systems and the Manchester Health Department, we are proud to provide 150 high-achieving, fourth and fifth grade students at Gossler Park and Beech Street schools with a bike, lock, light-set, and helmet.
Advocacy & Infrastructure
QC Bike recognizes the importance of bicycle friendly policies and infrastructure to safely connect people to jobs, healthcare and other services.
In partnership with the City of Manchester, in 2020 we installed the first of 10 FixIt Stations around the city. The stations provide cyclists with the tools they need to perform minor repairs outside of Shop time. Existing and proposed stations are shown on this map.
In the summer of 2021, we formed an internal interest group to carry on the work of Bike Manchester, who we acquired in a merger earlier in the year.
