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. Shop 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.

Brian remained Vice President.. as he has since OTC inception and Holly will remain treasurer.
Off the chain has found a new space just down the road at 1406 W.33rd Ave, just behind Taproot and next door to our friends at the Anchorage Maker’s Space! The transition will take place throughout the month of March and you can look to find us at our new space in April. Stay tuned for updates about the move and shop hours here or at our facebook page!
