The Bike Doctor

The Bike Doctor

Bike Doctor is an outreach program of the Community Bicycle Center in Biddeford.  Bike Doctor is a self-contained, highly visible cargo bicycle that will be used to provide free bike repair to kids and their parents who live in Biddeford but who may be a little too far from the CBC workshop to get there on their own.  To schedule Bike Doctor to drop by, email Andrew.

Once a week, Bike Monkey’s bike repair program graduates, youth completing mandated community service, and experienced CBC participants will accompany the CBC’s lead mechanic pedaling into Biddeford neighborhoods to provide free bike repair for kids who cannot reach the CBC’s fixed location on Hill Street. We'll have the opportunity to meet our neighbors and develop new connections within our community.
