Changing Gears


Changing Gears Bike Shop was a non-profit bike shop in Alameda, CA, that provided full-service sales and repairs to the general public, job training to formerly homeless individuals, opportunities for low-income people to earn bikes and parts, and a community gathering space for nearby residents. The shop received over 1250 bike donations per year for their twelve-year life. In early January 2019, unable to find alternative locations, Changing Gears decided to close its doors after receiving notice that their lease would be terminated.
