“We are moving Cycloperativa. The new location opens (today).”
New location: rue Van Arteveldestraat, 124
Notes: Brussels has a great collection of socially funded bicycle repair shops. And then you get to Cycloperativa. They offer bicycle repairs for free. Brilliant in the less wealthy city centre. The mechanics volunteer their time and they come from a mass of bike shops across the city. Every week, on Mondays, they offer the service. So I will be there this evening, celebrating opening night. They have photos on their Facebook page. The new location is complete with sofas and chairs for the essential non-bicycle part of life. cycloperativa.jpg
