Yellow Bike Project

An Update on COVID-19 & YBP:

As we join with our world in adapting to the rapidly changing realities of COVID-19 and our mutual responsibilities to one another, we regret to announce that Yellow Bike Project is closed to the public and ceasing operations until further notice.

This is an unprecedented time for us all, and we know that this epidemic is going to be especially hard on so many of the communities we serve. Low income folks, people experiencing homelessness, immigrants and refugees, children and families, and service industry workers (including our colleagues at other local bike shops) are all facing deep uncertainty about the present as well as the future. YBP is wholly a product of this city’s incredible heart and generosity and desire to help each other out. We hope that all of you will find ways to support those in need, even while physical distance and economic turbulence makes it so much harder to do.

We wish each and every one of you the best, and look forward to the day we can pick our wrenches back up and make sure everyone has a bike to ride.

Love and solidarity,

YBP

Yellow Bike Project is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization that has been working since 1997 to get more bikes on the streets of Austin by operating community bike shops, teaching bike mechanics and maintenance, and acting as a local bike advocacy group. To learn about all the different ways you can use the shop, click here!

 

WTF at YBP

We are VERY excited to announce the revival of our Women/Trans/Femme  workshop! Come hang out! Come wrench with us! No experience necessary.

This workshop is run similarly to our Community Workshops but in a supportive, all Women/Trans/Femme (WTF) atmosphere.

WTF hours are open to anyone who identifies as female, transgender, femme, genderqueer, trans-masculine, trans-feminine, or feels that their socialization or treatment as a woman, transperson, and/or femme has impeded their participation in bicycle mechanics.

(WTF language borrowed from the BICAS -Bicycle Inter-Community Art and Salvage website)

Bring your own bike project (or see what we have!) and use our tools with W/T/F-identifying mechanics on hand to guide you and answer your questions.  Learn how to fix your bike, earn a bike through our Earn-a-Bike program or volunteer around the shop.
