Bikes del Pueblo will be staffing a weekly bike parking at our new space on the Pop-Up 15 lot, a project of our partner, the El Cajon Boulevard BIA (Yes we have moved to a new location and have expanded our hours! More info in previous posts!).
Please read the information below and spread the word!

Kick-off This Friday, December 2nd at 7 am
Enhancing the Culture of Bike/Transit Connection in San Diego
What:  FREE Bike Valet Parking on The Boulevard will be provided to local transit commuters! The pilot Bike Valet program will offer area residents space for up to 50 bikes from  7 am until 7 pm.  The Bike Valet is being launched by the El Cajon Boulevard Business Improvement Association (BIA) at POPUP15, in partnership with Bikes del Pueblo. 
The Bike Valet allows commuters the opportunity to securely store their bike with knowledgeable staff and then be able to board a bus without worrying if there’s space for their bike.
Funding for the bike valet pilot is made possible through Mid-City Community Parking District.
When: 7 am until 7 pm Friday, December 2, 2016
Where: POPUP15: 4050 El Cajon Blvd SD, CA 92015
The POPUP15, adjacent to the El Cajon Boulevard Transit Plaza, is transforming a vacant lot through "placemaking" into a creative public space that locals see as a hub to Commute, Gather and Connect

Bikes del Pueblo Soft Opening October 14th

Hey y'all, your local community bike kitchen is officially opening up in our new space this Friday!
Our new hours are Wed 1-5, Friday 1-5, and Sat 1-4.
During these hours, folks will have access to parts, bikes, and all of our tools on site, as opposed to our usual bike clinic operation. 
We will still be operating at the City Heights Farmer's Market every Saturday from 9 am to 12:30 pm.
The new location is a storage container and patio located at the PopUp 15 Lot at the corner of Central and El Cajon Blvd.

We are currently looking for more volunteers, particularly who speak languages like Spanish, Swahili, Arabic, Luganda, Karen, and Vietnamese. No experience necessary, just come hang out and shadow us. Volunteer training events are soon to come.

If you have volunteered with us in the past, your help would be invaluable to us currently as we situate ourselves in the next couple months.

We are still working out the kinks, our grand opening will be a bit later in the month once our patio is finished and we are well situated in our new space.

Come by and check it out!!
