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.
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.
SBK will be closed Wednesday, April 18th, for our monthly volunteer appreciation staff ride.
Regular shop hours will resume Thursday at 6pm.
