C.I.C.L.E., Valley Bikery, Celebrate Opening of Bikery’s First Storefront

CICLE's Dan Dabek is our host at the opening of the Valley Bikery.

The Valley Bikery celebrated a major milestone this Saturday, when it opened the doors of its first "store front" co-op space at 14416 Victory Boulevard in Van Nuys.  The Bikery will be open every Tuesday from 7:00 to 10:00 P.M. and 2:00 to 5:00 P.M. every Saturday.

To mark the occasion, Bikery staff held a free bike maintenance clinic for nearly a dozen cyclists.  Later in the afternoon, Cyclists Inciting Change through Live Exchange (CICLE) led a nine mile bike ride from the Bikery to Lake Balboa with a stop at the Encino Velodrome.  A brief photo essay on the day's festivities can be found after the jump.

Streetsblog would like to congratulate the volunteers of the Bikery on opening their first store front space.  The Bikery joins the Bicycle Kitchen, Bike Oven, Bikerowave and City of Light's Bici Digna in operating a co-op out of a centralized space.
