Sisters In Action [formerly Girls In Action] is BNB’s program for all girls, femmes, trans, and womxn. Just like our co-ed Earn-A-Bike program, Sisters In Action (SIA) combines bicycle mechanics and riding and is a great way for sisters ALL AGES to learn new things, make friends, get active and earn a bike of their own! In addition to mechanics, SIA offers fitness, safety, and environmental activities, as well as weekly workshops or field trips! You might visit an urban farm, learn how to do henna tattoos, or do community service, all while meeting other cool GFTW and learning how to completely rebuild a bike. 

Sisters In Action is an intensive program, and runs Mondays and Wednesdays from 4 pm to 7 pm. People without schedule conflicts are given preference.

No experience in biking or mechanics is necessary to apply and as with Earn-A-Bike, every program graduate will ride away on their very own refurbished bicycle!
