About San Jose Bike Clinic

COVID UPDATE – November 17, 2020

In accordance with Santa Clara County’s November 16th Public Health Order, we have made the difficult decision of closing temporarily while our county remains at the Purple level. This was not an easy decision for us as we know our services are considered essential in our community. We will monitor the county health orders daily and re-open as soon as it is safe to do so. Your health and safety, and that of our volunteers, is the most important thing to us.

When we do re-open we will continue to follow the guidelines we established earlier this year:

  1. EVERYONE (absolutely no exceptions) who enters the shop MUST wear a mask. We will have CLEAN, reusable masks for anyone who does not have a mask. Each mask will be used only once and then washed. If you want to keep the mask you can – in exchange we are asking for a $5 donation to help us replace them.
  2. All shop volunteers will be provided with face shields (optional), masks, nitrile gloves and ample amounts of hand sanitizer.
  3. Only two patrons will be allowed in the shop at any one time. The doors will remain locked and a volunteer will allow one patron to enter as another leaves to maintain the max 2 at a time limit.
  4. Rather than having patrons handle tools and do the work themselves – part of our core mission of education – we will be shifting to something closer to a full-service model where the volunteers will do the work, but at the same time they will explain what they are doing so patrons can learn from them.
  5. Patrons will be asked to stand behind a red tape line 6 feet from the work area. This is to help facilitate the proper social distancing ordinances.
  6. We will give preference to appointments. If you would like to set up an appointment please use our Appointments page.
  7. In order to help as many people as possible all service we provide must fit within a 30 minute time frame. If your bike needs more work than can be done in that time then the volunteers can only continue working on it if there is nobody else waiting. We appreciate your patience and support as we all work through this challenging time.

San José Bike Clinic was the dream of a small group of volunteers that has now become a reality. Imagine…

  • Imagine a city with flat terrain and perfectly temperate, dry weather year-round.
  • Imagine its residents; fun-loving, practical, health-conscious, environmentalist, and brilliant.
  • Imagine its cycling culture, thriving with thrilling events like San José Bike Party, strong organizations like the Silicon Valley Bicycle Coalition, and amazing plans like the City of San José’s Bike Plan.
  • Imagine a space, dedicated to these cyclists, this city, and its thriving bike culture – a community space for bike repair, bike education, and general all-around bike love.

You’ve just met San José Bike Clinic. It’s nice to meet you.
