Right to Move

Note: Starting on Monday, May 1, the shop will be closed while we move to a temporary space in Concordia’s Grey Nuns building. This move is to accommodate renovations to the building containing our usual space. We hope to reopen at the new spot within the next couple of weeks. Stay tuned for the exact date and location!
 
After a long hiatus, the shop is open to the public again, with limited opening hours subject to volunteer availability! See the Hours page for details!
 
Right to Move is a non-profit organization that was started in the spring of 1997 by a group who believed bicycles are a form of transportation that should be available to all, regardless of gender, age, wealth or ethnicity.
 
Bicycles are a viable urban transportation option, one far more economical and more ecological than cars in moving people to where they need to be.
 
In order to make bicycling a more accessible transportation option, we:
 
  • operate a drop-in, do-it-yourself bicycle shop where members can fix their own bicycles with the help of volunteer mechanics
  • hold hands-on workshops series on bicycle maintenance in English and French
  • accept and collect bicycles destined for the landfill, fix them, and donate them or sell them at low cost to those who would not otherwise be able to afford a bicycle
RTM is a membership-based organisation. Just $20 per year gets you access to our drop-in shop. Become a member today!
 
RTM is volunteer-driven. We are always looking for new volunteers for our steering committee, to help fix bikes, to be mechanics, and to do administrative work. Give us a call, come to the shop (to join or to add yourself to the members’ mailing list) and get involved, or send an email to RTM/Lvl.
