Red Shed Bike Shop
Riverside Park, Aleppo Street, Providence RI 02909
What is the Red Shed Bike Shop? Opened in 2009, in an effort to get people on bikes and keep bikes out of the River, The Red Shed Bike Shop (RSBS) is made of two 30-foot, bright red shipping containers and is located at Riverside Mills Park on Aleppo Street in Olneyville. The RSBS provides bike maintenance and repair workshops for local youth and adults, low cost bike repairs, cheap rentals, and used bikes for sale. Revenue from rentals, sales and repairs help us keep the shop open in this underserved community and help us increase bike use on Woonasquatucket River Greenway Bike Path, Providence's only paved off-road bike path. The Red Shed Bike Shop happily accepts donations of used bikes!
The Red Shed Bike Shop offers repairs, rebuilds and restorations. There's no job to big.

Get on a bicycle at the Red Shed – and help support our community bicycle programs. Mechanics and volunteers have taken bicycles out of the waste stream and refurbished them into road-ready vehicles. We are ready to put these bikes out in the world. Bikes range in price from $30-$250…test ride road bike, cruisers, vintage 3-speed, mountain, bmx, and kids’ bikes. Stop by during bike shop hours (above) to find the bike that's right for you.
We Take Bike Donations!
