Launch of Adult Earn-A-Bike

Undefined

The Adult Earn-A-Bike program started under the guidance of Shop Mechanic Derek McIntire.  AEAB filled the holes in Bikes Not Bombs' programing to provide access to bikes for adults who identify as low income, formerly incarcerated, a recent immigrant and/or living in an area underserved by public transportation.  Modeled after our youth Earn-A-Bike program, Adult Earn-A-Bike teaches bike maintenance, safe riding skills, and gives graduates unlimited access to our open shop time, all condensed into a schedule that works for busy adults.

In the first six months of the pilot program six graduates received refurbished hybrid bikes, a helmet, lock and lights.
