Greenfield: Taller de bicis / Bike Repair Workshops – Greenfield Community Science Workshop

Apart from the local bike shops in the city of Salinas, to our knowledge, there are no locally owned bike shops in the Salinas Valley as of April 17, 2024. That’s why we especially celebrate and appreciate the Greenfield Community Science Workshop’s bike education efforts, including their weekly Greenfield workshops as well as their occasional mobile workshops in Chualar, Gonzales, King City, San Ardo, San Lucas, Soledad, and any other Salinas Valley locations.

For info on GCSW’s mobile workshops, see
NOTE: As of April 17, 2024, their preferred phone number for bike lab and bike repair services is now (831) 233-8335.
