Galgosupernova started after pandemic in 2021 as a proposal of Open Shop thinking in community bike mechanics (mecánica comunitaria, in Spanish) at a cultural space in Abasto, in Buenos Aires, Argentina. For two years there was an open shop with a pop-up format in the sidewalk of this cultural space, working with neigbors and people from bike community. There were also bike rides to different natural reserves that are part of the geography of the city.

In 2023, the collective started to work in a new space giving free mechanic classes for CFP N°24 a public trade school in Flores. Finally, in 2024, the Open Shop moved to a new space offering a new schedule focusing on the need for using bikes in a society with new politics held by the national administration. This new space is in a bigger project that is a Recycling Cooperative called RUO, a social process that began in the 2001 crisis when unemployed people from neigborhoods started to organize themselves as recycling workers in the street recollecting paper and cardboard.
