The Bike Shed is an on-site group at CERES in Melbourne promoting cycling in the local community. Open to everyone, run entirely by volunteers.

Response to Covid-19

Like all of you, we have been closely monitoring the reports of COVID-19. Please know that our number one priority is the safety, health, and well-being of our members and volunteers.

While we have not had a case in our building or people, for the potential safety of everyone, The Bike Shed is closed. We will remain closed until April 18, after which time we will re-evaluate.


Due to the bike shed being closed, please do not donate bikes at this time.

What we do

  • Recycle donated bikes that might otherwise go to landfill
  • Educate members by providing access to the the bicycle workshop, mechanical knowledge, tools and parts.
  • Train volunteers to support the local bicycle community.


About the Bike Shed

Our aim is to provide affordable bikes people can learn to fix and build themselves. The central idea is to work with people, not for them.

Because we work outdoors, we close when the weather is extreme, or air quality is poor.
