Our Mission

The Rusty Spoke Community Bicycle Initiative is a volunteer based organization dedicated to bicycle advocacy in the Phoenix community. The Rusty Spoke's objective is to provide space for DIY (Do It Yourself) bicycle repair and recycling, and to encourage bicycle awareness through education and outreach. Based in downtown Phoenix, the Rusty Spoke is a safe and open space to ensure that all feel welcome.

The Shop

We have a well-stocked workspace with most, if not all, of the tools that you need to work on your bike. Bikes come in a variety of configurations and we have the tools for pretty much all of them (save a few specialty tools). We also have been known to make improvised tools when needed; just because we don’t have one doesn’t mean we can’t make it work. DIY is encouraged at the Rusty Spoke and we have a few volunteers who specialize in creative ways to fix or modify your bike.

Slow ride Clyde, moving like a herd of turtles. It's all about the journey, not the destination.
