Alameda County BikeMobile

The BikeMobile is available both in person and online.

In-Person BikeMobile Visits

Once a bike breaks down, it may go unridden for months or years. That’s where we come in. The BikeMobile’s hands-on bike repair clinics help people get back on their bikes and learn valuable maintenance skills. Whether it’s fixing a flat tire, a brake tune-up, or oiling a rusty chain, our mechanics will keep you rolling with a smile. Our clinics are great for all ages, and are available to schools, community organizations, and family friendly public events. Invite us to join an existing event or make us the main attraction!

The Alameda County BikeMobile program is funded by the Alameda County Transportation Commission.
