BikeVentura and the Ventura Bike HUB continue to expand their presence in the City and County of Ventura. The non-profit organization will move their operations to 490 N. Ventura Ave. This move is the largest expansion for the non-profit and is fitting for its ten year anniversary. In addition, BikeVentura recently opened a Bike HUB in the City of Fillmore.
“We have outgrown our current space and can’t wait to fill the new one,” shared Tobias “Toby” Smith, Program Director for BikeVentura.
The Bike HUB is a do-it-together community bicycle shop and second-hand bike thrift store with affordable refurbished bikes to help get people started riding, staffed by master mechanics and volunteers. The HUB began as a mobile bike station in 2012, though the group was formed in August 2007 with a primary focus of advocacy and bicycle safety.
“BikeVentura is well on its way to fulfilling its mission of a safe, healthy community through bicycle-centered education and empowerment,” stated John Buccola, Board Chairperson for BikeVentura.
BikeVentura is a project of VCCOOL; an active, grass-roots non-profit, charitable corporation. On the web at www.bikeventura.org.
