Earn a Bike

Overview

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 12 weekly sessions of an hour to an hour and a half.
