The CSUCI Bicycle Kitchen was formed in 2009 when 5 like-minded students came together to establish CI's first bike club. The original vision, the Bike Kitchen, was established as a student run bike co-op to provide students, staff and faculty with the knowledge, tools and space to fix bicycles. Over the years the club has grown to include a Race Team that competes in Mountain, Cyclocross, and Road bike racing. Today CIBK is one of the largest sports clubs at CSU Channel Islands, and hosts a plethora of events that are open to all students and members of the community. These events include volunteering opportunuties, social hang outs, epic rides and even exercise seminars.
The club would further like to expand its name at the University and in the local community to promote cycling as a fun, healthy and alternative lifestyle.
