Bike Exchange moves into new space in Palo Alto

The nonprofit Silicon Valley Bike Exchange has moved into its new digs in Palo Alto.

For years, the scrappy club of bicyclists and tinkerers had been operating out of a small garage space off Leghorn Street in Mountain View, which members used to fix up bikes for the poor. But it became impossible to stay at that location after the owner decided to sell the site, and members put out a plea for help finding a new home.

In the end, Google came to the rescue, offering the club a temporary lease on a 6,000-square-foot space off Bayshore Road.
