Off the Chain is a low cost, volunteer run, 501(c)(3) bicycle collective open to the Anchorage community. Off the Chain teaches people of all ages and backgrounds how to repair bicycles and strives to increase bicycle ridership, awareness, and safety through community service and education.

Off the Chain is open to the public during shop hours. During open shop hours you have access to our tools, library and advice from our volunteer mechanics. We have an inventory of refurbished bicycles, used parts and basic new parts available.


It’ cant be denied.. Winter is coming quickly! Help us clean up the shop for our exciting winter improvement project! “Stripper Parties” are happening every other Monday. Join us Sept 22nd at 7pm to tear some bikes apart, sort parts and clean up shop so we can make room for our new work area to be created! This is the best opportunity to become familiar with ALL the parts on a bike!

We need help staffing our Sunday shift from 3-7 and we could use a second hand at the farmers market on Saturdays until October. We’re doing our best to keep summer hours rolling through the fall as we continue to have outstanding turnout and support from everyone! Thank you!! If you can help, please email our volunteer coordinator at volunteer@offthechainak.org.
