Who We Are

ubi slide1

 

At United Bicycle Institute, we offer the most diverse bike curriculum in the world. Since 1981, we’ve offered bicycle mechanics courses in one and two week sessions and since 1991, we've offered custom frame building courses, enabling graduates to connect with industry leaders and job boards, as well as earn a post-secondary certificate. We’ve hosted students from over 45 countries, and help educate veterans through our VA benefits program.

 

What Makes Us Different

From our ultra-experienced faculty to our unbeatable location in Southern Oregon, there’s nowhere else to get a bike education quite like UBI.

 

We’ve been on the leading edge of mechanics, frame building, shop operations and more for over 35 years, meaning your time at UBI puts you at the forefront of industry knowledge and methods. Nowhere else can you get the same student-teach ratio, the same one-on-one guidance, or the same certifications that will follow you throughout your bike maintenance career.
