We LOVE Playa Bike Repair. Here's why:

Playa Bike Repair is a Burning Man Service Camp

1. We repair over 4,000 bikes every burn (Free!)

2. We rent Bikes. Rentals fund repairs.

3. We recycle. Donated bikes are later used for parts.



Historically we've been at 9/B.  In 2022, it's 8/F.  Near enough to everything and far enough from it all, at the same time. 


We strive to create a caring, nurturing environment for people needing bike repair, and a comfortable, friendly place for mechanics.



Many of us are mechanics, but we have roles for non-mechanics too! (Bar, bike distribution, DJ, greeter, kitchen, setup, shade, strike, etc). 



We provide two delicious meals per day, at 10:00 AM and 7:00 PM.  
We have a commercial kitchen you can use anytime.  



We mostly carpool, or take the bus. We don't have a lot of room, for RV's.

Camp Membership includes

• 2 delicious, nourishing meals per day
• High Quality, Professionally Maintained Bicycle
• The best amenities on the playa, bar none

PBR is limited in size.  We cannot accept everyone who applies, so apply early.  We seek campmates who can collaborate, and effectively work together to co-create our shared vision.  If that sounds like you, please apply.


Campmates work four 4-hour shifts (16 hours total) during the week.  Everyone must contribute to either set up, or strike.  Your shifts maybe the most rewarding part of your Burn.  

Repairing Playa bikes can be demanding.  So, we created this amazing community, and camp, to keep you clean, comfortable and nourished:
