Third Hand Bicycle Co-Op

174 E. 5th Avenue Columbus, OH 43201

Open Shops:
Wednesdays 6-9 PM
Saturdays 12-6 PM

Womyn/Trans Open Shop Night

We are happy to introduce a new shop night, Womyn and Trans Night. This is the same as open shop, but it is only open to self-identified womyn and trans people, who are traditionally marginalized in the cycling community. It is a chance to utilize the shop in a non-intimidating environment. No matter what your level of experience, we welcome you to come work on your own bike or volunteer.
Thursdays 6 pm - 9pm
There is a volunteer night as well, strictly for shop/co-op projects. No personal stand time.
Mondays 6-9

4 hours volunteer time or $25 for a year

Co-op Credit

For every hour volunteered at the Third Hand Bicycle Co-op you receive 7 Co-op credits. The credit earned can be applied towards up to 75% of a Third Hand purchase including bikes, parts, stand time, and workshops but excluding membership costs. For example, a member purchasing a $100.00 bike uses 10 volunteer hours to pay for 75% of the cost. Their out of pocket cost for the bike would be $25.00.
