Who We Are
Broadway Bicycle School is a worker-owned and collectively run bicycle shop. We specialize in expert bicycle repairs, bicycle sales, and new/used parts sales. We also offer stand rental with and without teaching and run classes on basic bicycle repair, advanced bicycle repair, and wheelbuilding at night.
A Worker Owned and Operated Co-op.
Broadway Bicycle School is cooperatively owned and operated. Everyone working here is either a co-owner of the shop or potential future owner.
Broadway was started as a worker co-op in 1972 because the kind folks who started the project wanted to work in a democratic and egalitarian workplace. We enjoy working with co-workers as equals. We also maintain that a better business can be built by the contributions of a group of invested worker-owners. We feel we can provide better wages, a better work environment and better service.
