the story

In May or June of 08’, four of us started with little more than dreams of bicycles. In the beginning, we had a portable bike stand, a small set of tools, and some milk crates full of parts that fit neatly into a cramped garage. During the next few months we worked feverishly repairing and refurbishing old bikes. As time passed and through numerous donations and benefits,our inventory grew considerably prompting the move to our current location behind LeLe’s restaurant on MLK. Since then we have been running a small community shop where we work to keep people on the road. 2nd Cycle provides the tools and workspace for people to wrench on their own peddle powered machines. Additionally, we do repairs, sales, and socializing. There is a small library to flip through as well as the free flowing dissemination of information from any of the fine volunteers. We sell new brake pads, cables a variety of different inner tubes as well as used parts and bicycles that would otherwise be headed for the waste stream. This is a space for the novice and the experienced and we hope that others, like us, feel empowered by learning how to fix and maintain their bicycle.
