Update – Change of Bike Kitchen Days!

We are still open three nights a week
but our days of the week have changed to
Monday, Tuesday and Saturday
from 6 to 8 p.m.
We are still located at the Jefferson Community Center, 1000 B street in Eureka. (In the yellow building on Clark Street with the wonderful mural in progress between A & B streets!)

The Bike Kitchen is becoming even more vibrant with the addition of a fantastic mural by local artist Augustus Clark. The mural is still in progress but already has dramatically added to the neighborhood.

 

Summer was busy in the Bike Kitchen with many people finding a new (or first ever!) bike. We also met many new people in the community by having a booth at Friday Night Market this fall.

Thank you Funders!
The Bike Kitchen depends upon community donations and volunteering to continue our services, but we also sometimes get a little extra help from funders. The Northern California Environmental Grassroots Fund of the Rose Foundation recently awarded the bike kitchen a generous grant for general support. Funding from the Manual C. Kaster Fund of the Humboldt Area Foundation and Humboldt Sponsors have also allowed us to provide free bike lights and bike locks to youth and adults in need for safety and security.

Bike Kitchen volunteers recently screen printed more t-shirts! Get yours during open hours.

Get Involved!
Have you thought about getting more involved in the Bike Kitchen but wondered what you can contribute? Everyone has something to contribute. Volunteer mechanics and “concierges” help keep the bike kitchen running and serving people in our community. Both roles represent the Bike Kitchen, welcome new people into the space, and help keep tools and parts organized and accessible. Mechanics often teach bike maintenance techniques and help with hands-on repairs. Concierges orient new people to how the bike kitchen works, keep track of volunteer hours and run our computer tracking systems.
If you are interested in getting more involved, inquire at the Bike Kitchen or contact us at 707-269-2061 or eurekacommunitybikekitchen [@] gmail.com.

Have an old bike, tools or parts to donate?
The Community Bike Kitchen gladly accepts donations during open hours or you can send an email to eurekacommunitybikekitchen [@] gmail.com or call (707) 269-2061 for more information.

It’s Been A While!

Don’t let the dust on this site fool you, we’re very busy working on bikes and getting them out into the community. Planning a makeover on this site, but in the meantime you can keep up with us on Facebook https://www.facebook.com/CommunityBikeKitchenAtJeffersonSchool/

Until then…

The Fisher family recently stopped by to pick Mom up a new chain.

The Eureka Bike Kitchen

The Community Bike Kitchen has moved to our new location within the Jefferson Community Center and we are so thankful for the space! The stand alone building is located along Clark Street directly behind the main Jefferson Building and is just what we needed to increase our storage capacity and provide our volunteers and members with plenty of space to work on bikes. Here’s a few pictures of the new space. Be sure to come down and check it out! We are now open Monday, Tuesday and Saturday evenings from 6 to 8 p.m.

We have a large selection of refurbished bicycles that you can take home by
either making a cash donation or by volunteering your time to earn credits!
