The event will also feature a “Tianguis Graits” (free market) where farmworkers and homeless can take home up to six items of clothing, household items, etc. free of charge. A turquoise Fuji road bike will be raffled off: $5 per ticket. All of the proceeds from this event support the Bike Shack program.
The Watsonville Bike Shack is 100% community driven and sustained.
About the Watsonville Bike Shack
Bike Shack’s normal operating hours are Tuesdays and Thursdays from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m., and Fridays at the Farmers’ Market. We also offer service hours to youth who want to learn more about bike maintenance and repair, and to work in exchange for a bike, or get credit for high school graduation or community hours towards probation. At the Bike Shack, youth learn useful skills, focusing their energy on something creative and productive, and get mentoring from lead mechanics who share similar life stories.
