We offer two things at our bike shop: Non judgemental bike repair and the occasional joke. Our goal is to make sure your bike is safe and road worthy.
Call us to make an appointment for your bike or stop by, we would love to meet you.
YaBikes! is pleased to support Charlies FreeWheels. We provide Charlies FreeWheels a home to grow and provide excellent programming to at-risk youth in the area. Our hope is that by supporting Charlies FreeWheels the organization is able to reach greater numbers of youth and make a lasting change in our neighbourhood.
(in the back space of YaBikes!)
Charlie's FreeWheels aims to inspire a spirit of exploration and to mobilize, empower and engage youth using bicycles as a driver for personal growth and positive social change.
Charlie’s FreeWheels offers a Build-A-Bike program that teaches bicycle mechanics to youth. The program is free for participants, and gives youth the opportunity to build their own bike by refurbishing a used one. At the end of the program, participants get a new bike, accessories and the necessary skills to safely ride and maintain their bikes.
Where the magic happens.
YaBikes! supports Toronto's annual Icycle, a series of bike races in the cold darkness of February on a rink in Dufferin Grove. All proceeds go to the Bicycle Messenger Emergency Fund.
YaBikes! was once called Charlie's Bike Joint, a sister shop to The Bike Joint on Harbord St. The boys that once worked at Charlie's Bike Joint now own the shop YaBikes! Support local small business.
YaBikes! and Charlie's FreeWheels do safety checks and light repairs at street festivals and farmers markets around the city. Look for us and come say HI.
YaBikes! and Charlie's FreeWheels share a glorious basement and collection of bikes for youth to build. Donate your old bike to a good cause.
