Thanks for the bike check!
We would like to drop off a bike for parts. When would that be possible?

Thanks!
Many Thanks to Ryan and the people of Esperanza for their help in making a cart for my boy Zeke. He is still not sure about it, but I'm hoping...
This place is Great!! The team helped me with my bike with some great adjustments!! Thank you a bunch!!
I went to Esperanza’s Community Bike shop today and they were amazing. I had no idea how to do pretty much anything with a bike. I had been given a used bike for my son and it needed all kinds of things! New tire, brakes fixed, wheel truing, a new reflector, and lots of adjustments. I was able to get all of that fixed myself, with the help of many many people that work there (and every single one of them was awesome!) so thank you so much! I learned a ton and will definitely go back!
Thank you Esperanza for helping me find two bike wheels. I really appreciate you! This is what one became for Valentine’s Day! Thank you!
Hi! Do you guys have any upcoming classes on how to change a bike tire and general bike maintenance?
I am Looking for a Boys Stingray with Bananna Seat. With Shfter would be cool..
Vision Zero Albuquerque
I attended the Earn-a-Bike program this past fall, and now able to do my 11 mile commute no problem on my Giant OCR-1! Thank you again guys for the education, the helmet and the sweet ride, she's wonderful!
Two of the new Scouts from Troop 717 wanted to say thank you for helping them with their bicycles!!
Is the bike valet still happening at Balloon Fiesta for the Freedom 4th event? I didn't see any mention of it here or on the City site. Thanks!

Esperanza means hope. At the Esperanza Community Bike Shop we hope to create a better Albuquerque by At the Esperanza Community Bike Shop we hope to create a better Albuquerque by promoting, bicycle education and transportation.

With some basic knowledge and access to the necessary equipment bicycling can be a safe, healthy, dependable, inexpensive, and fun way to get around. The Esperanza Community Bike Shop will introduce people of all ages to the joy and freedom of bicycle riding, and provide opportunities for them to learn how to repair bicycles. At the Bike Shop we will not fix your bike for you; instead, we show you

Open Clinic v2.0 begins Sunday, March 7th! We're so excited to welcome you back into our shop!

What's the same:
Just as before, we'll be offering a space where you can learn to repair and maintain your bicycle. We will provide a bench, repair stand, tools, donated parts, and most importantly, expertise to get your repair done safely and correctly. You'll turn the wrench, but we're here to help!

What's different:
With COVID still looming, we will only be allowing people in by appointment, so you'll need to call us at 505-224-6668 beginning at 10am the day you'll be coming to make an appointment. You will have 1 hr 45 min for each appointment to complete your repair, so plan accordingly if you have a job that might take more than one session. We will be sanitizing the whole shop between each session.

If you have questions or concerns about Open Clinic or any of our other programs, please reach of anytime at 505-224-6668 or check out www.cabq.gov/esperanza for more info.
