WELCOME TO THE SACRAMENTO BICYCLE KITCHEN
The Sacramento Bicycle Kitchen (SBK) is a community-centered bicycle shop serving the residents of Sacramento. The organization was formed in order to promote cycling as a low-cost, alternative form of transportation; enable self-sufficiency through knowledge of bicycle maintenance; and promote bicycle safety through education and classes.
SBK wants to improve bicycling in Sacramento by making bicycle maintenance, repair, and training more widely available to everyone, regardless of skill level. To this end, we provide the space, tools, and staff necessary to help patrons learn how to perform any bicycle repair need they may have, all in exchange for a minimal cash donation. Besides running the bike shop, we also try to offer maintenance and safety courses and community outreach projects.
SBK’s doors are open during shop hours to anyone who loves and respects bicycling and their fellow cyclists as much as we do!
Look for the Ivy near the intersection of 20th & I streets!
Sacramento is one of the most diverse communities in the nation. SBK is an organization that is committed to creating an environment that is free from bigotry and hate. Discrimination will not be tolerated and we try hard to maintain an open and safe environment for all. If you encounter someone that goes against this policy, please bring it to one of the core volunteers’ attention.
The Sacramento Bicycle Kitchen will be hosting a Basic Bicycle Maintenance Class on the third (3rd) Monday of every month at 6:30-7:30 PM. First class – May 16, 2016.
Basic bicycle maintenance: Level A
* Bring your own bike for hands-on experience
* Bike component identification.
* Pre-ride bike safety check.
* Clean and lube the drive train for a quiet, smooth ride, and to prevent wear & tear.
* Recommended tools and how to change an inner tube/fix-a-flat.
Classes are FREE. No need to RSVP. Please arrive a few minutes early to complete our waiver and sign in process.
Neglecting maintenance on you bike can result in an expensive trip to your local bicycle shop. These classes provide an opportunity to learn the basic maintenance skills necessary to keep your bike on the road, out of the shop, and avoid expensive repairs.
Come down and see what our shop has to offer.
Meet at the bike kitchen at 6, roll out at 6:30. Mysterious or festive attire is encouraged and lights are mandatory.
The destination will be a mystery but it will be a family friendly 8ish mile ride there with beer and dogs welcome. The emphasis will be on the ride, seeing some beautiful Sacramento countryside and pedaling forth to our unknown location. All Ages. Free. Join and share our event!
