Headquarters and community hub

In 2011, we joined forces with DesignBuildBluff to build the 88bikeshop—a mobile, sustainable, hand-built, solar-powered shop that serviced our bike endowment on the remote and sprawling Najavo Nation.

The 88bikeshop is now being transitioned into our headquarters where we will:

  • host talks from inspiring authors, activists and filmmakers about everything from Joy-Based Philanthropy to climate change, oceans, human rights and the work of other NGOs, like Surfrider Foundation;

  • offer 88bikes information and photography on site;

  • invite the community to relax in our Euro-style outdoor coffee-shop;

  • serve Cambodia coffee sourced from a family in the Ratankiri Province, available free for a donation of any amount;

  • stock ElliptiGO bikes for our donors to borrow; and 

  • work with our volunteers and team to grow Joy-Based Philanthropy. 

In 2019, we’ll choose a permanent home for 88HQ. Los Angeles? Seattle? Bozeman? Jackson Hole? Know a great spot? We’re listening!
