Help refresh central Seattle’s bike kitchen at the Bikery Bash

12088102_10153625588174174_5333654616188587528_nFor nearly ten years, the Bikery has gathered bike-fixing tools and community knowledge in Central Seattle, serving as a safe space where anyone can fix their rides.

Now located in the ArtSpace Hiawatha building where the Central District, the International District and north Rainier Ave come together, there’s a renewed push to invest in the non-profit (read more about them in this great Grist story).

You can support the Bikery by contributing online to their crowdfunding campaign (there are some pretty sweet rewards), or you can go party with them 7 – 10 p.m. Saturday at the Bikery Bash.

If they meet their campaign goals, the Bikery hopes to make these improvements:

  • Redesign our shop, create new workstations and a more well-organized environment
  • Buy a broader set of tools, including an air compressor and additional workstands
  • Pay our rent and other operational expenses. (we’d like soap in our bathroom)
  • Invest in technology that will bring modern wonders like instructional videos, point-of-sale software, and electronic communication into our shop
These upgrades will allow us to do the following:
  • Serve more people, more effectively in our shop.
  • Engage with additional volunteers, providing valuable work experience and skills.
  • Keep more bikes rolling smoothly
  • Keep more smiles out there in the world
