Bikes and Boards

Who are we?Bikes and Boards

We’re a bike and board shop located right on Queen’s campus! Found in the Lower JDUC, we seek to provide students with a centre for bike and board safety, maintenance and culture while promoting carbon-free alternative transport and healthy lifestyles. Want to know how to fix that dreaded flat tire or how to properly maintain your drivetrain? Come in and talk to one of our technicians who will teach you how, on your own bike! Interested in having a sweet spot to hang out on campus while meeting cool people? E-mail inquiries to bikesandboards@ams.queensu.ca and ask about volunteering with us!

What we do.

We are a repair shop that focusses on basic repairs for commuter, road, hybrid and mountain bikes as well as skate boards and long boards, while focusing on the promotion of social, environmental and economic sustainability through its internal operations and community outreach programming. We provide access to our tools for a small fee so if you know how to fix it but just don’t have the right wrench, we’ve got you covered! Throughout the year we will have a selection of refurbished bikes and new longboards for sale so keep your eyes peeled for your perfect match! Bike parts and accessories such as tubes, locks, lights and bells are also available for purchase.

How much?

Tool usage fee: $2 per visit or $10 for use throughout the entire school year.
