The Cooproute member Biciclot, a bike recycling cooperative that works with people in need and offer bike tours for groups of 4 to 40 people in Barcelona, is getting bigger, thanks to the City Council support.
The Ada Colau´s Administration is concentrating in Biciclot one of its main projects for the city in Social Economy Issues and bike issues. They are constructing Can Picó, a bicycle “hub” -as they call it-, with an initial fund of 200.000 Euros.
The money goes in part to make the proper renewal of the building. Ones the renewal is finished, the space will offer bike services, courses (for example, on how to fix your own bike), a school for instructors, and a shop of recycled bike products.
The space will also have the Observatory of Bikes in Barcelona. And the rest of the space will be dedicated to social and solidarity economy activities. One of the things that they will offer will be a “co-working-social” space.
