Our youth participants learn bicycle mechanics as they serve their community and work their way toward earning their very own bike. Along the way, they’ll [take group rides with staff mentors], learn customer service skills, and build confidence.
Basic repair skills youth mechanics will master:
- Identification and use of repair tools
- Fixing/Changing flat tires
- Adjusting brakes
- Adjusting shifting
- Lots of other cool stuff!
Completing our basic Earn-A-Bike program requires 10 weekly sessions of an hour to an hour and a half.
If you’re between 12-17 years old and interested in joining, apply online HERE.

Orientation for new participants is required.
