9 Years of Mission Bicycle

May 10, 2018

In the summer of 2009, we first opened the doors to 766 Valencia Street. Our idea was simple but novel: create a space for bicycle commuters to become bicycle designers.

This month marks 9 years (and thousands of bikes) since opening. 766 Valencia looks a bit different, we've added new options and faces, but our mission remains the same.

To celebrate our 9th year of designing and building bikes here in The Mission, we're inviting anyone who can make it to join us on a celebratory group ride around San Francisco. We'll trek it through the Mission, up The Wiggle, across Golden Gate Park, down to Ocean Beach for a coffee break, and finally end our ride back at the shop for cake and plenty of refreshing beverages.

To thank you we'll be offering up free rentals (while supplies last) for the ride. This is a great chance to come out, enjoy a ride with us, and keep the bike overnight to see if it vibes with your lifestyle. We're certain it will. You're also obviously welcome to bring any bike you see fit, as our rental supply will dwindle quickly.

To participate in our "Birthday Ride" simply meet us Sunday, May 27th at the shop (766 Valencia) at 11:00am, or earlier if you'd like to get on a Mission rental bike for the cruise.


Thank you for riding along with us on this journey. This milestone is most accurately a reflection of a passionate, supportive, and energetic community. You.

We believe you and your bike should be celebrated. Thanks for letting us do so for the last 9 years.
