Now there’s Patch it Forward!
Not having access to the tools or knowledge to fix a flat is a significant barrier to your neighbors who rely on their bikes. You can be the difference between a neighbor getting where they need to go or being stranded with a flat.
Giving Self-Reliance & Confidence
#PatchitForward means celebrating the power learning to fix a flat. This is one of the first things taught in our classrooms because it builds confidence. It shows that you are capable of biking to wherever your legs can take you with the assurance that you can make it home again.
#PatchitForward keeps otherwise usable parts on the road and out of the trash. Rather than a one way path from department store to landfill, a patching a tube keeps useful things working as long as possible.
Being a part of something
#PatchitForward shows the importance of community. Help prevent someone from getting stranded by giving the tools and knowledge to fix their flat. It’s not about how much you give, it’s about being a part of something bigger than yourself.
“At Bike Works, one of the first skills we teach in any class is how to fix a flat tire. It may sound simple, but knowing how to patch a tube and replace a tire goes a long way towards feeling empowered and confident on the road.”
Make a gift in support of Bike Works programs & keep your neighbors rolling!
