The Bike Shack (bikeshack.org) is a volunteer-run, donation-funded place
that helps people learn to fix their bikes and provides tools for
community use on a sliding scale. We welcome just about anyone to come in
and use our tools, ask us questions, or look for used bikes or parts
(available by donation).
After about 6 years of doing this, we're trying to find other places The
Bike Shack can operate. The following would be nice in a fun bunch. Any
offer that includes these I'll most likely eventually take a look at:
-A secure space the size of about a single car garage (~260 sq ft, at
least 10 feet wide), in Seattle, about East of I-5 and North of the canal
-Enough electricity for lights, a radio, and the occasional small power tool
-A hard and flat finished floor (concrete is ideal)
-Access to a toilet and running water
-A lease costing up to $250 per month, but preferably less
My commute takes me on the I-90 bridge. I was riding home when I heard a seriously loud wolf whistle, so I look down... and there are a couple of guys in a motorboat going under the bridge, standing up and waving.
Only in Seattle might you be catcalled by people in a motorboat while riding your bike.
