About Us

Waterside Workshops engages youth and the community through hands-on learning in bicycle mechanics, wooden boatbuilding, and outdoor education. Waterside is a safe place for youth to feel heard, gain confidence, develop work skills, and access the tools and resources needed to lead healthy, sustainable lives.

Street Level Cycles is a full service bike shop that also serves as our bicycle education, repair, and reuse program. Working alongside skilled instructors, our youth interns learn professional bike repair by refurbishing used bicycles, which are distributed back to the community as affordable, sustainable transportation. Youth also help community members fix their own bicycles in our do-it-yourself Open Shop workspace. Each year, with the support of our interns, we refurbish, reuse, or recycle over 1,000 unwanted bicycles and serve over 1,300 community members in Open Shop. In 2022, through our bike giveaway programs, Street Level Cycles donated 254 bikes to low-income individuals and families.
