Episode 28: The Vulture Space (Milwaukee Community Bicycle Project)

Play

Enjoy my interview with Evan Pack, founder and director of the Vulture Space: Milwaukee Community Bicycle Project, a community bike shop focused on getting more people riding bikes more often. The shop sells inexpensive bikes, parts and accessories and provides the tools necessary for all kinds of people to learn and practice bicycle repair. Evan Pack is a Milwaukee native with a passion for long-term bike touring, when he’s not busy helping other people get back on the road.

Support this great community resource by donating money, parts, tools and accessories, and by becoming a member.  Find out more on website and Facebook page.

All of Evan’s favorite bike coops and many more can be found on the Community Bicycle Organizations wiki compiled by the Bicycle Collective Network.

Other useful links: Milwaukee Bicycle Community; Amtrak bike policy (see also this bike packing video); Michael Horne’s historic bikes (Milwaukee Magazine); South Shore Cyclery (donated equipment to Vulture Space and vintage bicycles to the Bike Federation); NPR affiliate WUWM on the Vulture Space opening (at the end) and their brief interview on Lance Armstrong; Ray’s Indoor Mountain Bike Park; Milwaukee Bike Share (would be similar to Madison B-Cycle).
