Organizational Overview: The mission of Second Cycle, a nonprofit organization based in Tacoma, WA, is to demystify and normalize bike riding as a part of daily life while realizing the bicycle as a tool of personal and community empowerment. We do this through our community tool space, through youth bike programs, and by providing an open, supportive, and accessible environment. We work to expand participation in the cycling community and are working toward a world where the joy of riding a bicycle is accessible to everybody.
Second Cycle was started a little under 13 years ago in a basement garage. We started small and have steadily grown. We have a gritty sensibility and a DIY ethos deeply ingrained in our organizational DNA. We started with just a community tool space in mind and have added a variety of vibrant youth and adult programs.
We are anchored in the Hilltop community and have been running the shop somewhere in Hilltop for the last 13 years. We have seen a lot of changes in this neighborhood, and we see the changes coming with the light rail and 1500 apartment units to be added in the next three years. That all being said, the organization has been and is on a growth trajectory, and there will be opportunities to grow with it for the right individual.
Who we are:
Collaborative team players
Bike riders, bike mechanics
Energetic and hard workers who manage time and risk
Self-starters with growth mindsets
Personable and humorous
