What is Bike School?

Bike School is a series of classes that bring young people together for approximately five weeks to learn basic bike mechanics, refurbish donated bikes, learn safe urban riding, and earn a bike of their own. Throughout Bike School, students also learn to think critically about the systems that contribute to challenges they face every day.
