Program schedule:



On-The-Bike is a program for youth aged 12-18 who are looking to:

  • Complete daily bike rides, gradually increasing in distance
  • Learn about bike safety, proper helmet and bike fitting
  • Learn bike riding and commuting skills
  • Learn and execute basic bike maintenance tasks such as flat fixing, adjust wheels, brakes, and gears
  • Understand basic social justice values, systems, political education and awareness


No experience in biking or mechanics is necessary to apply and every program graduate will ride away on their very own refurbished bicycle and helmet!


How to Apply: 

Apply for On-The-Bike online, or you can fill out the form onsite at our bike shop. To qualify for enrollment, the application must be submitted in full and program fees paid no later than one week before the start of the program. Program fees are $50 - $100, on a sliding scale (you decide how much you can pay). If you are unable to afford the class fee, you can submit a request for a fee waiver.
