Bike-Friendly Cafe in Oakland

The Actual Cafe in Oakland, CA offers indoor bike parking for its patrons; the back wall has a rack that accommodates 20 bicycles. They also provide free use of a tire pump and tools for quick repairs. From the Actual Cafe website:

At Actual, we like bikes. A lot. We’re not sure they’re going to solve all the problems of the world, but we’re pretty sure they won’t make ‘em worse. Oh, and don’t get us wrong: we think you’re sexy even when you don’t ride your bikes – but we’re positive that you’re even sexier when you do.

So, we made space for bikes. Inside the Cafe. So you can roll your bike in out of the cold, hard world and have it keep you company while you drink your coffee or eat your lunch. Don’t be embarrassed if you’re not on a vintage track bike, or a one-of-a-kind Italian gold-plated number, or some featherweight aerospace kinda thing. Your rusty old Huffy is beautiful. Trust us.
