Non-profit Bike Shop and Repair Center Moves to Rogers Park

The Recyclery shop from Evanston is moving south to 7628 N. Paulina Street to a more customer-friendly and convenient space. The Recyclery receives bike donations, and repairs them for resale. It also regularly hosts bike building and repair workshops free of charge.
This Chitown Daily News post about the move features some interesting transportation facts:
"According to the most recent U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics Consumer Expenditure Survey, Americans spent an average of $8,758 on vehicle ownership in 2007, including $2,384 elusively for gas and motor oil purchases.
This figure does not include other miscellaneous expenses such as auto insurance or maintenance and repair costs. Those purchases added about $2,000 more.

On the other hand, the average person spent $538 on public transportation."
