Until further notice and effective immediately, the Silicon Valley Bicycle Exchange and Santa Cruz Bicycle Exchange have canceled all events at our facilities.

This suspends public bike repair workdays, drop-in retail sales and donation drop-offs.  Some volunteering continues behind the scenes.  We have teamed up with Silicon Valley Bicycle Coalition to create a new #BikeMatch program, which aims to match unused bikes with recipients.

The event cancellations are necessary to both protect community health and comply with Santa Clara County and Santa Cruz County's orders to shelter in place. This follows Governor Gavin Newsom's self-isolation guidance for any resident 65 or older.

It's our third update and change due to the coronavirus (COVID-19). We originally opted to reduce group size, then canceled any social interaction and encouraged working outside and taking homework bikes

Please keep yourself healthy and we look forward to seeing you on the other side. Our bikes, mission and gatherings will resume when it's both safe and legal to do so. Keep your eye on our online calendar and website for updates on our events.
