Locally owned businesses make Downtown Alameda a better place. They help our community thrive and add to Alameda’s unique charm.
This year Alameda Bicycle is celebrating its 50th year in business. Since operations began in 1969, the owners of Alameda Bicycle have been building a community and encouraging lifestyles that are healthy and sustainable. It’s not enough just to sell bikes — they make sure that the people who buy them use them and enjoy them.
To all of you business owners who provide unforgettable customer service and have surpassed milestone anniversaries this year, we celebrate you!

Thanks to the Clean, Green & Safe Committee and Allison Shannon at Alameda Theatre & Cineplex for starting the Tidy Up Tuesday! program. As part of this pilot program, Allison has been working with businesses on Central Ave to inspire owners and staff to tidy up their storefront, from door to curb, each Tuesday.
As a result of Allison’s enthusiasm, sidewalks are being swept, flowers are being planted, and storefronts are looking clean. Thank you for a job well done!
