As Sacramento's only non-profit volunteer bicycle shop, the Sacramento Bicycle Kitchen fills a niche by providing bicycle safety education (through Safer Cycling Sacramento), drop-in bicycle repair and maintenance, and an open atmosphere that nourishes Sacramento's growing bicycle culture. We are a group of cyclists who are enthusiastic and passionate about giving back
and improving Sacramento, one bicycle at a time.

With gasoline prices on the rise and air quality on the decline, the bicycle remains one of the most efficient and environmentally-friendly transportation choices. Community members may use the tools and expertise of the Sacramento Bicycle Kitchen (SBK) to affordably repair their own bikes, or build-a-bike from one of the many donated frames and parts available.

Membership is encouraged and the public can join on a month-to-month basis or pay a nominal annual membership fee; all proceeds go towards maintaining the shop. All SBK members will have the opportunity to build-a-bike of their choosing and learn how to keep their bicycle running smoothly year-round.

A shop schedule including hours of operation, classes, and special events can be found at the SBK's website: http://www.sacbikekitchen.org . The website also includes
photos, and a forum where members and the public can discuss bicycle repair, commuting by bike, and local bicycle-related events.
