Off the Chain is a low cost, volunteer run 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 Bicycle Collective
is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization.
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.
Off the Chain has a suggested hourly shop rate of $5/hr. This rate
is to be paid by everyone using the shop and is used to pay rent,
insurance and other expenses.
Prices are listed at the shop and are on a “pay what you can” basis.
The Shift Manager has the final say on all prices.
We accept all bikes and parts, regardless of their condition; we
do this in order to encourage all bikes to be recycled. Please drop
them off during open shop hours. Financial donations are also appreciated.
Off the Chain is committed to maintaining an inclusive environmentfor all users regardless of age,
culture, ability, sex, gender identity, gender expression, sexual orientation, race, color, religion,
economic status, and/or legal status. We value collaboration and mutual respect. We recognize inequities
exist and strive to promote equality through dialogue, organizational reflection, and action.
