The “Kitchen” aspect of our Bicycle Kitchen is to provide free bicycle repair and maintenance education to the CI community. Additionally, we aim to function as a social hub for local cycling of all sorts. We provide work space, tools and information to help realize this mission and promote the bicycle as a means of alternative transportation, exercise and of course, fun.
We are a non-profit (501c3) volunteer co-op ready to teach you how to fix your bike. No prior cycling experience or repair skills are needed, and everyone is welcome. Furthermore, our mission augments CI’s commitment towards building a green campus with respect to education, transit and recycling.
How to get involved:
Step 1: Get involved!
Step 2: Come to a meeting (Wednesdays 7:30pm) or come by Kitchen hours (Hours/day fluctuate per semester. Check with the current president for more details.)
Step 3: Learn how to work on bikes
We are always looking for more mechanics or students who would like to learn more about fixing bikes!
The kitchen accepts donated parts to help build bikes as well. If you would like to donate old frames, wheels, shifting components or other parts that belong on bicycles, we will take them!
For more information please contact: CSUCIBicycleKitchen@gmail.com or cisync.
If you or someone you knows has any bikes or bike parts that they no longer want, you may donate them to CIBK. We will work on them and then make them available for people to use on social rides if they do not have a bike of their own.
