Update – Change of Bike Kitchen Days!

We are still open three nights a week but our days of the week have changed to Monday, Tuesday from 6 to 8 p.m. and Saturday from 2 to 4 p.m.

We are still located at the Jefferson Community Center, 1000 B street in Eureka. (In the yellow building on Clark Street with the wonderful mural in progress between A & B streets!)

The Bike Kitchen is becoming even more vibrant with the addition of a fantastic mural by local artist Augustus Clark. The mural is still in progress but already has dramatically added to the neighborhood.

 

Summer was busy in the Bike Kitchen with many people finding a new (or first ever!) bike. We also met many new people in the community by having a booth at Friday Night Market this fall.

Thank you Funders!
The Bike Kitchen depends upon community donations and volunteering to continue our services, but we also sometimes get a little extra help from funders. The Northern California Environmental Grassroots Fund of the Rose Foundation recently awarded the bike kitchen a generous grant for general support. Funding from the Manual C. Kaster Fund of the Humboldt Area Foundation and Humboldt Sponsors have also allowed us to provide free bike lights and bike locks to youth and adults in need for safety and security.

Bike Kitchen volunteers recently screen printed more t-shirts! Get yours during open hours.

Get Involved!
Have you thought about getting more involved in the Bike Kitchen but wondered what you can contribute? Everyone has something to contribute. Volunteer mechanics and “concierges” help keep the bike kitchen running and serving people in our community. Both roles represent the Bike Kitchen, welcome new people into the space, and help keep tools and parts organized and accessible. Mechanics often teach bike maintenance techniques and help with hands-on repairs. Concierges orient new people to how the bike kitchen works, keep track of volunteer hours and run our computer tracking systems.
If you are interested in getting more involved, inquire at the Bike Kitchen or contact us at 707-269-2061 or eurekacommunitybikekitchen [@] gmail.com.
