Sip & Spoke Bike Kitchen

Hidden in the Uphams Corner neighborhood of Boston, there is an oft-ignored old “comfort station,” a boarded-up former public restroom in a century-old Mission-style structure. Enter an entrepreneur who wants to restore the building and open the Sip & Spoke Bike Kitchen, a combination bike shop and cafe. He’s going to need help with renovation, Historic Boston has stepped in to buy the comfort station from the city for a nominal fee, managing the renovation and leasing it to Sip & Spoke.

Today, I supported Sip & Spoke on National Geographic’s Partners in Preservation campaign. With enough support from the public, the project will receive grants from National Geographic to kickstart the renovation.
