Brought to you by Right Bike and Safer Roads Ottawa

Bring your bike to Ottawa City Hall for a quick tune-up by a professional bike mechanic from Right Bike. They’ll take a look at your brakes, gears, wheels and tires to make sure that you are ready to ride.

These are quick and free tune ups, so there may be procedures and replacement parts that you will need that are beyond what can be done on site. But that’s okay! The mechanics will tell you what needs to be done and to refer you to a fine bike shop in your own neighbourhood that can help you.

Right Bike is a social enterprise bike shop that delivers bike share, rental, service, DIY nights and sells used and up cycled bikes from their location at 1A McCormick Street in Hintonburg. As a member of the Causeway Group of Social Businesses, Right Bike exists to provide jobs and training for individuals in our community who are working to overcome barriers to employment.
