Right to Move

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.
