SLO Bike Kitchen

SLO Bike Kitchen

Founded in 2008. Educational shop with an extensive collection of tools and an organized work area. Funded on a donation basis, we accept bikes and parts which will then be available to the public for use. We ask for quite a small donation for using the facility and for the used parts. People without funds may use the facility, this is evaluated on a cases by case basis, often on a work trade basis. We are currently staffed by volunteers plus one Americorps Member serving as the program coordinator (as of May 2011).

See website for details.
