2nd Cycle: A New Location for Tacoma's Bicycle Co-op

Tacoma's non-profit bicycle co-op 2nd Cycle opened it's doors last Saturday in their new location at 1312 Martin Luther King Jr. Way.  A few friends and I cycled over to check out the new space.

The new shop is cavernous compared to the old space!  They now have plenty of room for their vast collection of used parts, frames, and complete bikes. Customers can spread out as they tune bikes in the stand, search for parts, and share tools. Our kids were literally running around without bothering any one.

The steady stream of customers that came in during their first hour was evidence to me that 2nd Cycle is providing a useful and much needed service to the community.  Stop by and check it out.
