Bicycle Kitchen or Bike Kitchen is a new term that refers to a number of independent non-profit and often cooperative organizations that offer space, tools and knowledge to people to fix or build bikes. Other terms that are used are simply community bike-workshops.

Locations

Starting as an American West-coast urban phenomenon, bicycle kitchens have spread as far as Bozeman, Montana, Nashville, Tennessee, and even Hobart, Tasmania. The city of Los Angeles has three bicycle kitchen organizations, the original Bicycle Kitchen in Koreatown, the Bike Oven in Cypress Park, and the Bikerowave in Mar Vista. Other prominent bicycle kitchens are in San Francisco and Sacramento.

Mission

Bicycle kitchens typically provide low- or no-cost instruction in bicycle mechanics and offer educational workshops to fill community needs and to promote cycling in the greater public.
