Joining Hammer And Cyclery


Hammer And Cyclery is a community of people dedicated to serving Burners through bicycles. Bicycle rentals pay for it all.

Join our camp to contribute and participate in something larger than yourself. (No dues. NO EXPERIENCE NECESSARY!)

We work together as a camp to repair bicycles, receive donations, and facilitate events. Our crew hosts more than 1000 people per day!

But while bicycles are our excuse, getting to work with amazing people toward an important goal is the real point of Hammer And Cyclery. It's often brutal work, but it makes a real difference.
