Alameda Sun: Island City Bicycle Nonprofit Can’t Surmount Bump in Road, January 24, 2019


The Changing Gears Bicycle Shop is closing after 12 years in business in Alameda. The Island City staple located at Alameda Point will shut down services officially in April.


Changing Gears management has been unable find any affordable alternative locations after searching for more than a year. The owners of Changing Gears hoped to move to Oakland after the lease was up at their current location. But after being unable to find a new location, they will permanently close the business.
