The Missing Link Bicycle Cooperative was started by a group of UC Berkeley students in 1971 in the basement of the university's Student Union building, and incorporated in 1973. Since the beginning we've been worker owned. And more than 45 years later we're still here.
We come from various backgrounds of the cycling community: we commute, we race, we tour, we are parents, we're students. But something we all share is an appreciation for bikes, our craft, and the environment. Over the years some of us come and go, but in the end we all run this shop together. Through thick and thin.
Running a cooperative is no easy feat, but we are committed to each other, our community, bikes, and a more sustainable world. Thank you for supporting us.
