Oakland SPOKES is a week into our Popup Lease in partnership with *Popuphood Oakland (http://www.popuphood.com/) and CAC REAL ESTATE MANAGEMENT CO., INC. (www.cacremco.com). We are Bike SHOP as well as a hyper local/National Community Bike Organization (CBO).
Our Bike Lounge displays and consigns bikes built by Bay Area mechanics as part of the campaign for SPOKES National’s Community Bike Organization Project. Our goal is to collectively advocate for earmarked City, State, and Federal funding of local community bike organizations and small bike related businesses. Oakland SPOKES community Bike Lounge has commuter accessories and bicycle service and catered café fixings from Awaken Cafe, Bicycle Coffee, Numi Tea in its new Old Oakland Location at: 465 9th street Oakland, Ca. We also can do custom builds and carry some new and used bikes.
We will be having daily opportunities for our *members to reserve space to do workshops and host bike-related social events.
Our grand opening took place in the middle of the Bike to Work After Party and we hosted the official Bike to work “After Party -After Party” with DJ Abeldee and extended hours.
Inside the lounge has a prominent 6'x4' map of the East Bay community and small neighborhood bike shops. This map will serve as a visual guide to patrons of where all our member shops are located in reference to each other the hub and their lives.
As a hybrid business the Oakland community bike lounge supports community engagement, alternative transportation, economic stimulation across neighborhood boundaries, diversity, and collective economy. As a community serving organization SPOKES provides services that promote human powered transportation, alternative mobility, carbon reduction, and the act local think global movement.
