BikeSGV is in the process of opening the SGV's first Bicycle Education Center and Cooperative conveniently located just a few blocks from the Rio Hondo Bike Path behind the El Monte Airport. The cooperative will occupy two classrooms at the decommissioned Mulhall Elementary School, now the Jeff Seymour Family Center.
As all of our projects this is very much a grassroots effort and will depend on community support to get off the ground and flourish. We hope you will get involved in any way you can, whether it be donating a few dollars, volunteering your time, and/or passing forward any extra bike parts you might have collecting dust.
