Bici Centro Opens City College Workshop

Bici Centro and its parent organization, the Santa Barbara Bicycle Coalition, opened a new DIY repair shop (pictured) at SBCC this week. The workspace, a smaller version of Bici Centro’s Haley Street shop, is open from 10 a.m.-2 p.m. Monday-Thursday. City College recently launched an alternative-transportation incentive program that’s proved popular, school officials said, and president Lori Gaskin was on hand for this week’s opening. “Let’s let this grow and grow and become a phenomenon,” she said.
