The used parts and bicycles that we receive come from individuals in our community as well as local bicycle shops who value our work. The few dollars that folks donate to use our tools are what keep our rent paid and our lights on. Now that we are facing a big change and assessing our future we need to reach out to our community to donate to build a better Bike Pirates.
We have called the Bloor and Lansdowne neighbourhood home for 6 years, filling up a Bloor Street storefront with 9 repair stands, lots of tools, piles of used parts, and so so so many bicycles. Thousands of people (and bikes) have come through our door and been helped over the past 6 years. The time has come for us to move to a new space in which we can continue to grow our workspace and our programming.
