The Bike Kitchen is a non-profit community bike shop that was created to provide a space for students and other community members to learn how to use our tools and parts to maintain, repair, and build their own bicycles. The Bike Kitchen also recycles abandoned and donated bikes to provide students with reliable and reasonably priced bicycles.
The Bike Kitchen was founded through BEST (Better Environmentally Sound Transportation) and managed temporarily through Our Community Bikes. In 1999, the Bike Kitchen was handed over to the Co-op. Since this time, the Co-op’s board of directors are in charge of appointing a manager to oversee the operations of the shop. In practice, the two organizations work side by side to run and develop programming.
