Earn-a-Bike Program

What is Earn-A-Bike?

Learn how to fix bikes and earn community service hours!  During this 8-week after-school program, you can practice your skills on bikes we repair and give back to the community. In addition to working on donated bike projects, you can pick out and fix up your own bike, or earn cool bike parts and accessories!

Our classes include:

  • Beginner Repair classes where youth learn about simple mechanics and are able to earn a BMX bicycle with community service hours
  • Intermediate Repair classes encompass more difficult bike repair lessons on more complex bikes and youth can earn a mountain bike with hours
  • Advanced Repair classes are for youth who are interested in working in a bike shop or in entering our Bicycle Leaders Program. Youth who graduate from this class can mentor and apprentice in our programs as instructors and as mechanics in our bike shop and Bike Mobile.

Interested in becoming a mechanic and investing in community?  Find the right class for you and sign up!

All class session are 4:00 – 6:00 PM.
