Since opening in June 2013, the Community Bike Kitchen has provided tools, resources and mechanics’ knowledge to help people learn to repair or build-up used bicycles. The bike kitchen is located at the Jefferson Community Center, and provides bicycles and bicycle knowledge to Eureka’s Westside community and beyond. We envision a healthy, sustainable, bike friendly North Coast in which all people have access to bicycles and the resources necessary to maintain them. We have assisted hundreds of youth and adults in finding affordable recycled bicycles and learning new skills in bicycle maintenance, repair and safety while improving transportation security and fostering a sense of community in west Eureka. Our earn-a-bike program has enabled over 120 community members the opportunity to volunteer in the bike kitchen learning new skills while working towards a new set of wheels.
The Community Bike Kitchen is now open four evenings a week – Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Saturdays and Sundays from 6 – 8 p.m. If you are interested in getting involved, find a bicycle or make a donation come by the bike kitchen during open hours or call 707-269-2061.
