BIKE MECHANIC (PART-TIME)
At Toronto Bicycle Tours & Events we run a year-round bicycle tour, event and rental service for visitors from around the world.
We are the friendly guides to those exploring Toronto. Whether they are first time visitors, returning guests, or even long-time residents, we seek to connect our customers to the city, and to each other. Our love of meaningful experiences links us together, and encourages our guests to lose themselves in the story of Toronto, and in doing so, add their own unique experiences to the life of this great city
We are looking for skilled, reliable and personable mechanics to keep our fleet of city bikes and kids bikes in top shape for our tour guests and rental customers.
As Mechanic, your responsibilities would include:
- Inspect, repair and service our fleet bikes
- Make requests for additional parts/supplies
- Assembling new bikes & fitting accessories (fenders, etc)

The job begins in January 2023, and is part time – up to 20-25 hrs/week in our peak season (April – October). Our shop is located in downtown Toronto (275 Dundas St West, near University Ave). We realize people have other jobs and commitments and try to accommodate requested schedules for our mechanics.
