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 classes and community outreach projects.
SBK relies on volunteers and donations to keep our doors open; visit our volunteer page for info on volunteer requirements and our donations page for the why, what, when, hows of donating!
Look for the Ivy near the intersection of 20th & I streets!
SBK’s doors are open during shop hours to anyone who loves and respects bicycling and their fellow cyclists as much as we do!
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.
SBK will be closed Thursday, May 17th, for our monthly volunteer appreciation staff ride. Regular shop hours will resume Friday at 10am.
The Bad News: There will be no Saturday shift this week due to lack of available volunteer power. This is the reality of a volunteer-run space. If this makes you unhappy, consider becoming a Volunteer–it’s the BEST!!!
The Good News:
The SBK Second Saturday show will go on! Join us for a very special Second Saturday show! We will be celebrating the release of Soft Science‘s new album “Maps”! To give you a taste, here is a link to a recent single off the upcoming album.
The lineup will include:
– Soft Science
As usual, we will have some tasty beers on tap and we are excited to have KC Kombucha there as well!
Doors open at 6. Music starts at 7. ALL AGES. NO COVER.
Mark Your Calendars! SBK’s SPRING VELO SWAP and YARD SALE is coming soon!
Date: Saturday, May 19, 2018
Time: 9:00am-12:00 noon
The Sacramento Bicycle Kitchen will be having a Velo Swap: We will have vendors in the parking lot selling all things bicycle. Stop by to buy, sell (must sign up to be a vendor), or swap! All things cycling related are welcome: parts, frames, wheels, clothes, accessories, and more!
Vendor fee is $5 and space is limited.
While this all happens in the parking lot, SBK volunteers will also be doing some spring cleaning inside and bringing out excess stock to sell at reduced prices at our Yard Sale tent! SBK stock will be for sale only– we can not buy or trade! The more you buy, the more we will bring out!
SBK’s regular Saturday shift will be held inside the shop from 10am-2pm; items for sale inside the shop are not part of the yard sale and will remain at their regular prices.
Email email@example.com if you’re interested in being a vendor or if you have any questions.
Update: This class is now full! Future offerings will be posted when they are scheduled. In the meantime, all open shifts are basically bike maintenance open workshops so feel free to come in during any open shift- Tue-Thu 6pm-9pm, Fri-Sat … Continue reading
