Bike Kitchen

In 2010, the University of Cincinnati created a campus bike shop to service the fleet of the Bearcat Bike Share and to provide an informal atmosphere for the UC community to learn about bike repair, bike safety, commuting, and to use the resources to do simple repairs on their own bikes.  From 2010 to December of 2016, the Bike Kitchen was located in a former kitchen space of the old Faculty Club.

The Bike Kitchen is managed by the Office of Sustainability, and trained bike mechanics run the shop.

Bike Kitchen Relocation

Over the last six years, the popularity and utilization of the Bike Kitchen has grown dramatically with the success of the program.  This growth has prompted the need for the University to build a new space for the Bike Kitchen, which is located at 101 West Daniels St. by Dabney Hall.  The new Bike Kitchen location will open on 8/21/2017.
